The Itinerary

In Partnership with our host

Overview

Tunis has been the capital of Tunisia since the 13th century and was originally a Berber settlement. Situated on the North West of Tunisia, Tunis serves as an important crossroad between North Africa and the Middle East. The city’s geographical location coupled with the influence of foreign powers has allowed Tunis to flourish as a culturally diverse city that is home to various populations.

During this trip, you will have the opportunity to connect in-person with like-minded people, build everlasting friendships and collaborations while experiencing the cultural and creative heritage of the country through the eyes of its artists, historians, musicians, hosts, craftsmen and gastronomers.
