History lovers will have plenty to absorb and marvel at when they visit Tunisia.

Charter flights mainly operate into Monastir airport and the recently constructed Enfidha-Hammamet Airport, completed in 2009, both are within easy reach of most of the beach resorts, whilst most scheduled flight services operate into Tunis airport, which is well located to serve the bustling resort of Hammamet.
Most accommodation found on late deals to Tunisia have a big emphasis on providing half board to its guests, meaning that guests receive breakfasts and evening meals in the price that they pay. There are however many good standard all inclusive hotels, offering guests all the food, drink and facilities that they will need in order to have an enjoyable holiday. This also means that guests don't have to set foot outside of the hotel complex if they so wish, as everything is provided for them onsite!
Discover some fascinating resorts
A good selection of all inclusive hotels can be found in the resort of Skanes, with its sandy beach and great location nearby to Monastir airport or the ever popular Port el Kantaoui, which is a man-made resort with its own modern shopping centre, soft white sand beach and 350 berth marinas.
If you fancy a resort with a more traditional feel then go to Sousse or head up to Hammamet both of which have a medina, perfect for a spot of haggling. If this isn't enough, then you can also choose to get away from it all on the quiet Tunisian island haven of Djerba.
Last minute deals to Tunisia offer great facilities for a wide spectrum of travellers - families will appreciate the value for money it offers, couples will love the chance to relax and soak up the sun on the 800 miles of coastline, whilst pensioners can make use of the long stay holidays available, perfect for a winter break away from the chilly shores of home.
