An important city within the Muslim faith and an important centre for pilgrimage since the 7th century AD when it became a centre of Islamic teaching and learning. Kairouan has two famous mosques, The Great Mosque can only be entered by Muslims but non-Muslims can enjoy the splendid exterior. The Mosque of Three Doors is also worth visiting though tourists can only visit the outside. The classic Medina is worth walking around and filled in for Cairo in Indiana Jones and the Raider s of the Lost Ark.
Originally a roman outpost Tozeur is a stopping off point before heading into the dessert and if you are heading into the dessert or to the other natural features nearby such as the salt lakes you may decide to base yourselves from Tozeur but you will find there is a lot to see and do in the ancient city itself.

An area spread around two bays and centred on what was, until the 1920s, a small fishing village Hammamet is fairly well developed without having lost too much charm and the exquisite beaches and Turkish baths are where visitors spend most of their time.
