Visit Tunis Governorate

The Tunis Governorate is located in the northern region of Tunisia and is home to the capital city of Tunis. It has a rich heritage that dates back centuries and is filled with stunning architecture, monuments, and cultural artifacts from both its ancient past as well as its more recent history. The region is known for its vibrant culture, delicious cuisine, bustling markets, and picturesque coastline.

A visit to the Medina of Tunis offers plenty of opportunities for tourists to immerse themselves in history as it remains one of the best-preserved historic cities in North Africa. Other attractions include La Goulette beachfront promenade which provides beautiful views over Lake Tunis, or exploring ruins at Sbeitla which was a major Roman city during the 2nd century B.C.E..

This area has also been an important site throughout history; Hannibal crossed through what would become the Tunis Governorate on his march against Rome in 218 B.C.. It served as an important base for Muslim forces during their conquest of Ifriqiya (modern day Tunisia) in 647 C.E., while French colonization took place during 1881-1956 before it finally achieved independence again in 1956 following several years of resistance against colonial rule.
