The Tunisian National Tourist Office (ONTT) has published last Friday, June 11, a new promotional video that is aiming to revive the tourism sector on the eve of the summer vacation.
Produced in collaboration with the German Cooperation through its project “Promotion of Sustainable Tourism” which is a joint action of the European Union and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaftfür Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the video in object focuses on the multiple aspects that Tunisia has to offer to both local and international tourists wishing to spend their holidays in the North African nation.
Tunisia had already its first charter flight with holidaymakers since the end of last April, despite restrictions imposed by tourist-emitting countries in Europe to stem the upsurge in coronavirus cases.
Provided with the result of a negative PCR test carried out a maximum of 72 hours before boarding, tourists are in fact required to strictly comply with the Tunisian Anti-Covid-19 Tourism Health Protocol upon arrival in the country.
At the same time, a large-scale vaccination operation was launched by the Tunisian Ministry of Tourism in collaboration with the Professional Tourism Federations to vaccinate employees in the tourism sector working, in the first lines and permanently, in hotels and restaurants, travel agencies, museums and archaeological sites.
The 3-minute video hihglights the beauty of fine sandy beaches which once again invite tourists to enjoy a relaxing holiday udner the Mediterenean sun.
For tourists seeking to combine relaxation with adventures, water sports continue to develop in the countless nautical bases that dot the Tunisian coast. From the calm waters of Djerba in the south to the more sporting spots of the north coast, you can practice kayaking, kitesurfing and a variety of other water activities such as windsurfing and catamarans.
As for those in search of history and culture, the medinas of Tunis, Kairouan and Sousse, listed by UNESCO as world heritage sites, are real open-air museums. These medinas are among the best preserved in the entire Mediterranean basin, and feature the town planning typical of old Arab-Muslim towns.
On the north coast of Tunis, history buffs can also explore the remains of the archaeological site of Carthage, which was the first republic in human history.
In the northeast of the country, stands the city of Zaghouan with its mountainous landscape to cut the breath. The Berber village of Zriba Olia, built between two rocky peaks, offers its visitors magnificent views of Jebel Zaghouan where you can practice rock climbing on a sunny afternoon.
From north to south of Tunisia, the travel experience is unique and exceptional.
Just a few hours from the coast, we discover the splendor of the Great South with its sumptuous Sahara. A flagship winter destination, there are many places to visit. Stays in the middle of the desert or in unusual alternative accommodation structures, walks in the oases, in the locations and sets of some of the most famous films in the world, like the Mos Espa site built in OngJmel near Tozeur.
A panorama showing a reborn tourism with a tourist offer covering all seasons. Tunisia won’t stop surprising you.
