Tunis has a long tradition and history. The city is one of the oldest in the Mediterranean. The Numidian city of Tunis existed before the arrival of the first Phoenician colonists in the ninth century BC - in 1159 Tunis became the capital of Ifrīqiya and was then one of the leading trade centers with Europe.
The cityscape of Tunis is characterized by the strong contrast between the oriental old town and the European new town. The border point of the two parts of the city is the Victory Square with the former city gate (Porte de France). The main axis of the new town is the boulevard Avenue Habib Bourguiba, with its shopping facilities, restaurants and bars.
