Bizerte - Ichkeul Park: The tour star with a visit of Utica archeological site . First capital of the Phoenician presence in North Africa, Utica remained independent even after the founding of Carthage in 814 BC. Only after AD 480 BC, when the defeat of the Carthaginians at Himera in Sicily, Carthage, under its new policy of colonization of the hinterland, will submit Utica. Despite this dependence, Utica retained some autonomy.
Crammed full of culture, your next stop is Bizerte. Traditional and laid back, it’s guarded by two forts and is one of the country’s oldest cities, dating back to around 1000 BC. It’s then on to Lake Ichkeul. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this unique national park is beautifully peaceful.
