Renowned for its greenery, Tunisia is never more beautiful than in the spring. The profusion of colour and light transforms the country and set off the landscape to perfection. It must have been this vision that had such an effect on the painter, Paul Klee, during his trip to Tunisia in April 1914, and that encouraged him to paint his most luminous pictures. Follow in the footsteps of the painter from Sidi Bou Said to Kairouan.
Or a tour of some archaeological sites, which never look more beautiful than when they are studded with flowers. Nature lovers can get off the beaten track and enjoy a walk through the forests and mountains of the north, or embark on a boat trip around the many islands dotted along the Tunisian coastline. If it’s hunting you’re into, you can hunt wild boar in several regions, including on the outskirts of the Sahara.
And if you prefer to take things a bit easier, let yourself be pampered in a thalasso centre or a spa to recover from the damage done by winter. If you’re in search of some serious relaxation you can choose from one of the country’s many resorts for days lounging by the beach and enjoying some delicious food, and nights living it up and letting your hair down. Springtime in Tunisia also marks the start of an impressive programme of festivals, from Jazz in Carthage to the return of DJ nights in nightclubs and lounge bars in several cities.
