What to expect in Tunisia
Tunisia is located on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa and offers a diverse landscape from the mountains in the northern region to the Mediterranean beach resorts and the rolling dunes of the Sahara Desert.
The official language is Arabic, and French is the second language. English, German and Italian are also spoken mainly at the tourist resorts.
The tourism industry took a hit in 2015, after the terrorist attacks targeted tourists and foreign visitors. The Tunisian government is continuously working to improve the security of the main cities and tourist sites.
