We travelled there in October 2010, on an organised tour, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
There is a full write up here:Tunisia October 2010
and a full album of loads of pictures here: Tunisia 2010
We didn't see too much of Tunisian culture but the desert scenery is fabulous, without too much political worry.
The Star Wars sites are only worth it if you're a fan and Ksar Ghilane is spoilt by quad bike rides and tat shops but is still a worthwhile camping stop for southern exploration. The fort mentioned by MovingHouse is a pleasant stop. I have added a video of the climb to the top of the fort hill on youtube along with a few other clips from Tunisia. I'm on a works computer that won't allow access to youtube for me to give you the link but if you do a search for Overland Rovers Tunisia on there they should come up.

We found the WWII sites at Mareth very interesting but that's because my Dad fought there. If your into WWII history it's worth a visit. The journey across from Ksar Ghilane to Matmata/Mareth takes in some pleasant mountain pistes and roads with some nice scenery.
A visit to the Mosque in Kairouan is definatly worth it and a wander through the narrow streets gives some idea of Tunisian life (in a big city anyway).
Another high point for us was the collusium in El Jem. We only stopped fo an hour but I could have spent most of the day there.
I have promised to dig out my tracklog and waypoints for someone else recently so, once find them, I shall try and post them on here.
Initially Tunisia was a second best for us as our Morocco trip went horribly wrong. However we are both so glad that we went even though we are returning to Morocco in March.
Although it wouldn't be high on my list to go again (apart from en route to Libya) I think you'll love it.
