Tunis ferry port is also known as La Goulette. Tunis Ferry port handles a large traffic coming from Europe: from regular ferry crossings to luxury cruise-ships. Tunis is the capital of Tunisia and situated in the north-east on the Lake of Tunis and is connected to the Mediterranean sea's Gulf of Tunis by an impressive canal.
The centre of Tunis offers the famous Medina quarter, with wildly varied colours and scents, as well as of tourist souvenirs and works of tiny crafts-shops. Located in an old Beylic palace, the Bardo National Museum is the most important archaeological museum in the Maghreb and features one of the richest Roman mosaic collections in the world. Tunis also boasts many music festivals, most notably the Cathage International Festival, as well as theatre plays, operas and ballets. Tunis has an excellent public transport service with the "Metro leger", bus services and the TGM (Tunis-Goulette-Marsa) making it easy to travel across the city.
The principle port for Rome, and consequently one of Italy's busiest ferry ports, Civitavecchia is the main starting point for sea travel from central Italy to Sardinia and Barcelona. Civitavecchia itself is a bustling port town on Italy's western coast in the Latium region of the Rome province, often extremely busy with travellers making their way to or from the `Eternal City'.
The name Civitavecchia translates as `Ancient Town' which is reflected in the town with its mixture of old and new buildings, unfortunately though during the two World Wars, much of Civitavecchia was heavily damaged from bombing, including many of the historic buildings. Those that survived were renovated and reopened to the public; the most popular are the Forte Michelangelo, The cathedral of San Francesco d'Assisi, the Terme della Ficoncella (baths) and the old Roman Harbour, and the archaeological museum houses many findings from local archaeological sites. Of course the biggest attraction of Civitavecchia is visiting Rome, 80km to the south. The capital city of Italy is one of the cultural capitals of the world, home to famous architecture, landmarks, nightlife and cuisine.
