Visit a total of seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, covering the Phoenician, Roman and Islamic periods, accompanied by faculty leader Grant Parker, chair of Stanford’s department of classics and faculty affiliate of the university’s Center for African Studies.

Medinas, mosques and more. Walk through the old town of Tunis, Tunisia’s capital, with its mosques, palaces, handicraft museum, ornate necropolis of former Ottoman rulers and lively bazaars. Awesome oases! Explore the utterly stunning mountain oases of Chebika, Tamerza and Mides in the En Negueb hills along the Algerian border. Locals only.
