I'm planning a trip to tunisia for about 10 days. I don't have any plans yet, but i'm thinking about desert, ruins and beaches. Does anyone have suggestions or if any of you has done something similar to what i'm planning, could you tell me where did you went and what you did while there?
i suggest trying cathage for ruins, and sousse, hammamet monastir and tunis as other great places and the desert is great but very hot.

We did the whole thing a few years back on a pre-organised package two-day whirlwind tour from Sousse as a break from our beach holiday. Might be difficult to do on your own, but sure possible in ten days. Spent at least a few days in Sousse, and don't pass up the city museum there.

As a Karl May fan, I also enjoyed seeing Chott El Jerid, but each to hir own.
