I hope you find the following helpfu:

OUT AND ABOUT

There are a lot of shops around Hammamet Yasmine. An artificial Medina, a shopping mall, Carthage Land theme Park and the Marina.

Hammamet town boasts the Old Medina & the Kasbah, and its surrounding walls. Once inside the Kasbah you will find yourself negotiating a maze of very narrow alleyways, where you would pass some traditional white wall washed Tunisian homes with colourfully blue decorated doors and windows.

If you exhaust yourself going through the Kasbah, you could stop by the Cafe Sidi Bou Hdid and chill out with a nice cup of mint tea or cold soft drink while the admiring the beautiful Med sea.

There are several places to drink and eat in both Yasmine and old town Hammamet. If you feel home sick go to the Shakespeare pub. It is run by an English lady called Dawn. Great grubs and prices are great, some evenings you get 2 pints for the price of one. If you are into sport, then there are 5 large TV screens showing live action from home. On Tuesday and Friday nights the pub hosts hilarious drag queen shows.

Nearer to your hotel there is another recommendable English pub called the Steakhouse. I understand it is also run by English from Liverpool, and the hospitality in there is just as good as it gets.

LOCAL TRIPS / EXCURSIONS

Pirate Ship:

A trip on a pirate ship would cost 45TD. For this you get 4 hours of sailing with free soft drink & pasta salad, and some entertainment aboard the ship

Friguira Park zoo

This is another attraction to see the other exotic part of Africa. The wild life of Africa in form of big cats.

Entrance fees to the Park: Adult: 7TD (Child: 4TD).

There are activities within the park that would come at an extra charge, like swimming with the dolphins or attending the Zulu night time party with all that music, dancing and feasting African style,

A taxi to the park would cost no more 30TD. Alternatively you can go by train from Bir Bourerba train station just outside Hammamet town centre

Nebul Market

Nebul town hosts a weekly market every Friday where the locals from outer regions descend with their goods to sell. Very ideal place to witness the exotic and colourful local way of life. A taxi ride should cost no more than 12 TD.

TRIPS FURTHER AFIELD.

Further afield towards the South there is El Jem most famous for the Roman Coliseum. There are also some amazing sites of great archaeology interest. Many block buster movies were made in this area.

Another old place featured in movies (Notably the Monty Python’s Life of Brain) is The Ribat of Harthema in Monastir, south of Hammamet. The town is also known as Bourguiba city, named after Habib Bourguiba regarded as the father of modern Tunisia who was born in there and has a grand museum built in his honour. No too far from Monastir there is Sousse, the second largest city after the Capital Tunis.

Other cities of great historic connection are Carthage near the capital Tunis in the North. Carthage is mainly known for its Roman Empire past.

There are trains connections to most of these places. However, if you are a visitor I would recommend you go within an organised group should you wish to visit any of these sites.

Cheers

Cas
