Ferries to Tunisia

Tunisia is a slender country in North Africa, capped by the northernmost point on the continent. Bordered by Algeria and Libya, it has a 1,148 kilometre-long coastline on the Mediterranean Sea.

Taking up 40% of the landmass, the Sahara Desert sweeps down southern Tunisia and is scattered with major archaeological sites like the ruinous city of Carthage, featuring the Antonine Baths. Overlooking the turquoise med, it was founded in the 9th Century BC by the Phoenicians and was rightly placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.

Tourist-friendly cities such as the capital, Tunis offer authentic shopping experiences in busy local markets, also known as souks, and French-style cuisine. Overlooking the namesake lake, Tunis hosts the country’s largest mosque and an impressive archaeological museum which houses intricate Roman mosaics.

The former Roman colony of El Jem, just two hours from Tunis, is another unmissable marvel. Constructed in the third century, it contains a one of the largest amphitheatres of ancient Rome, with a capacity for 35,000 and a towering height of 41 metres.

Monastir, one of the oldest cities in Tunisia, is, unsurprisingly, steeped in history; topping the list of sights is the well-preserved Forte El Ribat, affording excellent hilltop views with horse drawn carts available for tours. Hugely popular for its golden beaches, Djerba is an island off the southeast coast known for its handicraft markets and cultural influences of Berber, Arab, Jewish and African peoples.

Owing to its location in the Mediterranean Sea, ferries to Tunisia come from many ports in southern Europe. The majority of routes link the capital and port city of Tunis with towns on the west coast of Italy and Palermo on Sicily, but there are also long-haul crossings from the south of France. These are also overnight sailings operated by excellent companies with large and comfortable ferries.

Tunisia reviews

  • "Bari to Durres"

    We travelled with a motorhome in June 2019. The trip took 11 hours. We had a room with 4 beds and a sink. No WC or shower. The WC were in a corridor outside, we didn't see any showers. In general we thought it was a good experience, no delays or bad treatment. The arrival time required (4 hours before departure) is a bit too much. Especially when the wait for embarkation is in a big parking lot with no shade.

  • "Big old boat "

    We went on the boat. It was a lot bigger than we thought. I'm fact, it was so big we didn't see much of it. I'm sure it would be fun to explore. We slept very well on the boat. Only complaint is constant announcements for the breakfast in the early hours of the morning. Incessant. We were v pleased to have our own toilet with complimentary shampoo. I wish I'd taken it with us.
