First as a Phoenician settlement; as a division of spoils for Rome and Greece, in the BCE era, and later as for center for Islamic Arts & Culture, it represented the capital route for trade and commerce to the Middle East, Europe and Asia Minor from its port city, Carthage, before he dawn of the Middle Ages.

Today, TUNISIA is a thriving metropolis with lots to offer global travelers.
