  • Climate:
    Climate in the north is temperate with mild, rainy winter and hot and dry summers. In the south you can find the desert Sahara. Best time to travel is in spring between mid-March and mid-May as it is warm, but not too hot and wild flowers are covering the countryside.
  • Travel Time:
    When just going on beach holidays summers are perfect, but it is also the peak season of Tunisia and you should expect high prices at this period of the year. The Saharan dunes should be visited in late autumn.
