Travel to Tunisia
Flying to Tunisia
Flights to Tunisia are operated by the national airline, Tunis Air (www.tunisair.com) which has regular flights from many major European cities including Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome, Vienna, and Zurich. Other airlines flying to Tunisia include Air France (www.airfrance.com) from Paris and Eurowings (www.eurowings.com) from Cologne.
As Tunisia's main tourism focus is on summer beach breaks, the best flight prices are generally found in the low season, between the months of November to February, when the weather is distinctly cooler.

Getting to Tunisia by boat
Tunisia is very accessible by sea, with several regular ferry routes from European ports including Marseille (France), and Genoa, Civitavecchia, Salerno and Palermo (Italy). Tunisia has seven major ports at (from north to south) Bizerte, Tunis-La Goulette, Radès, Sousse, Sfax, Gabès, and Zarzis. All are operated by Tunisia's Office de la Marine Marchande et des Ports (www.ommp.nat.tn).
