Tunisia’a capital since 1159, compact Tunis, a city of just one million people, is a testament to its history. From its Roman remains through to its classic bustling Arab medina and souq, with footnotes left by the Ottoman occupation, to its Ville Nouvelle centred on the grand Avenue of Habib Bourguiba, Tunis is a Mediterranean ‘east meets west’ city.
Tunis–Carthage Airport is the international airport of Tunis, the capital of Tunisia. It serves as the home base for Tunisair, Tunisair Express, Nouvelair Tunisia, and Tunisavia. The airport is named for the historic city of Carthage, located just east of the airport.
