Tunisia – The best for a cultural escape

For travellers seeking colourful medinas, ottoman architecture and traditional fare, The Residence Tunis invites guests to follow in the footsteps of a seasoned guide and discover the city’s copious historic treasures starting from the archaeological site of Carthage, once one of the most powerful cities in the ancient world and finishing at the quaint coastal town of Sidi Bou Said, weaving through its cobbled streets and blue-and-white houses which frame unobstructed views of the Mediterranean.

Guests can partake in a traditional Tunisian teatime at the town’s renowned “Café des Delices” and soak up the heady scents, sights and sounds the country is famed for. After days spent exploring, travellers are invited to unwind at the resort’s 4,000sqm Thalasso Spa, offering an array of traditional treatments and boasting an opulent indoor seawater swimming pool. As night falls, retreat to one of the 161 rooms and suites that provide a haven of relaxation or enjoy a heartfelt meal at the resort’s six restaurants.
