Tunisia is the Northernmost country in Africa, bordered by Algeria to the West, Libya to the Southeast and the Mediterranean Sea to the North and West.
Tunisia is most famous as a summer beach destination, with a sandy Mediterranean coast scented with jasmine and sea breezes. But there’s so much more to explore in Tunisia, from its distinctive sugar cube houses, to its grand ancient ruins, and the vast rolling dunes of the Sahara. Tunisia is truly a fusion of everything that North Africa has to offer.
The island of Sicily, located off the south coast of Italy is the largest of the numerous Italian islands and is surrounded by the Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean Seas.
Parts of Sicily are on the same latitude as the coast of North African which results in a mild climate that makes the island an attractive year round destination, not just with domestic visitors from mainland Italy but abroad too. As with many of the Italian islands, the tourist season peaks in the summer months.
On Sicily's eastern coast you’ll find Mount Etna, the greatest active volcano in Europe and undoubtedly one of the regions attractions.
Perhaps in part due to its geographical location, but in the main because of its obvious attraction as a destination, Sicily features a host of regular ferry connections with neighbouring islands and the Italian mainland as well as international connections with the likes of Malta and Tunisia.
