Come arrivare in Tunisia, i migliori mezzi di trasporto

Getting to Tunisia from Italy is very easy, considering that the country is only 150 kilometers from the coast of Sicily. Additionally, Italian citizens do not need a visa, so immigration procedures are quite smooth. There are two modes of transport to reach the North African country: by ship or by plane.

By Plane

The main airport of the country is Tunis-Carthage Airport, which serves the capital and surrounding areas. It handles over 5 million passengers a year, and numerous flights from Italy are operated by various airlines: Alitalia to and from Rome Fiumicino, Tunisair to and from Milan Malpensa, Palermo, Rome Fiumicino, and Venice, and Tunisair Express to and from Naples. These are complemented by a series of charter flights departing from various Italian airports. Besides Tunis Airport, the other significant airports in the country are in Djerba, Hammamet, and Monastir. However, they mainly handle charter flights operated during the summer, primarily used by European passengers to reach beach resorts. Djerba: serves the island of Djerba, one of the country’s main seaside destinations. Flights to and from Italy are mostly charters, except for Tunisair flights to and from Milan Malpensa and Verona, operated only during the summer season. Enfidha-Hammamet: the airport is located in Enfidha, 40 kilometers southwest of Hammamet, another important seaside resort in Tunisia. Currently, there are no direct flights to and from Italy, as tourism in this part of the country is mainly from Russia, Germany, and the UK. Monastir: Monastir Airport is a few kilometers from the city of the same name and is connected to Italy by Tunisair flights to and from Milan Malpensa and Verona, operated only during the summer season.

By Ship

It’s also possible to reach Tunisia by ship, using direct connections from the Italian ports of Genoa, Salerno, Palermo, and Civitavecchia. The connections are operational year-round, with one or two weekly departures. The approximate duration of the journey is about 20 hours, obviously varying depending on the port of departure. All ferries from Italy arrive at the port of La Goulette, located a few kilometers east of the capital, Tunis. Note that prices are not necessarily lower than air travel, especially during the high season. On the other hand, the advantage of traveling by ship is the ability to carry as much luggage as you want, and especially to bring your own car or motorcycle, useful if you plan to go on a road trip in Tunisia.
