La Marsa is a beautiful little paradise, faithful to the image we have of it: palm trees, sun galore, beautiful warm sandy beach and sea with azure reflections awaiting you. The prestigious guests who look for calm and luxury are accommodated in a palace in La Marsa,’Dar El Marsa’.
A little less touristy than its neighbors, including the famous Carthage, La Marsa will for sure seduce you.
Carthage is built on what is certainly one of the most beautiful sites of the Mediterranean. Even today, visitors are fascinated by the bay with its turquoise reflections, the white houses surrounded by cypress trees, and the distant silhouette of Mount Boukornine standing out against the mist. Discover fragments of history by accident in the streets of modern Carthage: the remains of the Basilica of Saint Cyprien overlooking the sea, the Carthaginian houses of the Magon quarter, the Punic ports where a striking serenity reigns… Then, climb the narrow paved streets of the famous neighbouring village, Sidi Bou Said, between blue Mashrabiya latticework, pink bougainvillea and wrought iron filigree. Contemplate the stunning seascape from the Sidi Chabaane cafe, the lighthouse or the old cemetery.
The entire town is simply beautiful, with flowers draped from almost every wall and doorway, and beautiful flowing vines hanging throughout the entire area. Sidi Bou Said is so beautiful, in fact, that many artists have taken up residence here.and become a place of rest and inspiration to many artists, musicians and writers such as Chateaubriand, Gustave Flaubert, Alphonse de Lamartine, André Gide, Colette, Simone de Beauvoir, etc.
