Hammamet has a wonderfully quaint location, snugly wrapped around a cove on the Cap Bon Peninsula. This is Tunisia’s original tourism resort.
With its sandy beaches and pretty, well-preserved Medina (historic centre), Hammamet provides a gentle introduction to the culture and traditions of North Africa. Sightseeing here usually comes second to general lazing about in the sun, but if you find yourself itching to get off the beach, the town is perfectly located as a base to explore the rest of Cap Bon’s tourist attractions.
Starting from Hammamet, you can visit the city of Nabeul known for its traditional pottery, you can also visit the souks of the Medina in Tunis and the well-known village of Sidi Bou Said and the famous Bardo Museum.
