Tunisia: A Journey Through Its Culture, History, and Heritage
WMF organized a week-long cultural excursion through Tunisia, exploring the rich past of a country now in transition. The travelers visited Tunis and environs, and enjoyed a reception in a private home in Sidi Bou Said. The travelers visited WMF’s project at the archaeological site of Bulla Regia, followed by a tour of the World Heritage Site of Dougga. They ventured south to Thuburbo Majus, El Djem, and Kairouan, and spent an evening on the southern island of Djerba.
