Tunisia is located at the junction of eastern and western basins of the Mediterranean, where Sicily Strait separates it from Europe by 140 km.
This geographical position, which made Tunisia a crossroads of civilizations in the past, renders it today a centre for international economic activities.
The history of Tunisia dates back over 3000 years. Many civilizations have succeeded: Berber, Punic, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Spanish, Turkish, French ... This mixing between civilizations has shaped the Tunisian culture and imbued her with a spirit of tolerance and openness.
