ABSTRACT
Tunisia contains some of the most important world heritage sites. Here in Tunisia, one can see and touch the milestones of world history, the Numedian and Punic civilizations, the Roman occupation, the Vandal destruction, the Byzantine elaboration, the Arab conquest, the Turkish lordship and the French colonization. The Ministry of Tourism, in conjunction with the Ministries of Culture and Environment are working on plans to diversify tourism and bring Tunisia's cultural treasures to the attention of the world. Tunisia became the African soccer champions in February 2004 when the home team beat a strong Moroccan side 2-1 in the finals of the Nokia African Nations Cup tournament at the Rades Stadium, Tunis. INSET: TUNISIA -- AFRICA'S SOCCER CHAMPIONS.
