Bizerte (ancient Hippo Diarrhytus and Hippo Zarytus) is a Tunisian seaport on the Mediterranean Sea. The outer harbour of the city is connected by canal with two inner harbours, the Bay of Sebra and the Lake of Bizerte. Olives are grown in the surrounding region, and the lake contains valuable fisheries. From here you can visit the capital Tunis.
Bizerte was first occupied by colonists from the Phoenician capital Tyre. The town later became a Roman colony, but after the 7th century AD it was held by the Arabs. After 1881, when France seized Tunisia and made it a protectorate, the French dredged channels and canals, enlarged the harbour, and built naval installations on the shore of the lake. German military forces occupied the port early in World War II. Allied troops finally liberated Bizerte in 1943.
