Matmata Vacation Packages
Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, is about 230 miles (370 kilometers) north of Matmata.
Tunisia is a firm fixture on the tourist trail, which means getting around is relatively easy. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to experience the incredible range of scenic and cultural wonders the region has to offer. Ksar Ghilane, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the north, and Gabes, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the southwest of Matmata are also waiting to be discovered.
History lovers will enjoy exploring the area's fascinating archeological sites, ruins and old towns. If the weather looks good, head outside to explore Tunisia's open-air markets.
Why not treat yourself to a high-altitude experience during your time in this region. Go parasailing; you'll never forget it.
Why not take your tastebuds on a journey through the culinary traditions of Tunisia. Tomatoes and seafood are two of the key ingredients. All-time favorite foods include mesfouf (couscous) and tabil (spice mixture), but there are many more options for foodies. Those who can still find room for a little more, can try asida (sweet gruel pudding), a great way to complete your Tunisia dining experience. Many people don't feel a meal is complete unless they've tried the regional wine. Sample Coteaux d’Utique or Coteaux de Carthage. To try something authentic try out cedratine (lemon liqueur), a popular spirit. Have a sample of one of the most common beverages in the Tunisia area; tea.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time fly home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Houmt Souk, 65 miles (105 kilometers) away.
