Tunis is the largest city in Tunisia and its capital and is located on a large Mediterranean Sea gulf, the Gulf of Tunis, behind the Lake of Tunis and the port of La Goulette. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Carthage, perhaps one of the most important archaeological sites ever found, is located around 12 km from Tunis. Many artefacts and the site of the ancient city have been unearthed including early Punic artefacts and Roman, Byzantine and Vandal buildings. The city has an eclectic mix of architectural styles, wide streets and narrow alleyways that are sometimes criss-crossed by tramways.
Although the old stone walls of the 9th century Medina no longer exist but the narrow streets, mosques, souks and historic structures remain and have also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are a number of festivals held in the city each year the largest being the Carthage International Festival which takes place during July and August. The festival, which was established in 1964, attracts visitors from around the world and much of it is held in the old amphitheatre of Carthage and hosts performances by singers, musicians, actors, dancers and shows films on outdoor screens.
The Italian city of Salerno lies on the Gulf of Salerno, in the Salerno region of Italy. The city lies on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is close to the Amalfi Coast and is perhaps best known for being the home of the world's first medical school, the Schola Medica Salernitana. Being the cultural hub of the region, Salerno has many things for visitors to see and do. The city has some lovely pedestrian streets and large piazzas and for visitors who have a car they can easily drive around the city as traffic is not a problem and parking is available in most areas.
Salerno is located at the geographical centre of a triangle nicknamed Tourist Triangle of the 3 P (namely a triangle with the corners in Pompeii, Paestum and Positano). This provides Salerno with a unique opportunity to attract tourists who visit the city to take in sights that include the Lungomare Trieste, the Castello di Arechi, the Duomo and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana.
