Tour Details

Day 1

Tunis - Kairouan - Monastir - Sousse

We'll pick you up in Tunis and depart to Kairouan, founded in 670 AD during the Arab conquest of Africa. In the 9th century it became one of the largest metropolises in the Mediterranean and is currently the fourth holiest city of Islam. Our itinerary includes visits to the Great Mosque, the Mosque of the Barber, and the Aghlabid Basins. You'll also have the opportunity to wander through the quaint Medina, savor local delicacies during a lunch break, and discover craft workshops. We'll stop at the Ribat of Monastir, the oldest Islamic defensive structure built by the Arab conquerors. Our journey will conclude with a visit to the Mausoleum of Bourguiba, containing the remains of the first president Habib Bourguiba and the father of Tunisian independence, who died in 2000. The mausoleum was built while Bourguiba was still alive, in 1963, in the modern Arab-Muslim style, very grand and elegant. We'll continue to Sousse where you'll have dinner and spend the night.

Day 2

Sousse - Hammamet

After breakfast, we'll take you to the most prominent sights of Sousse - the third largest city in Tunisia and an important commercial and military port during the 9th century. You'll see the Ribat founded during the 8th century and by far the best-preserved fortress in the region built of stone blocks by the coastline. We'll continue to the Archaeological museum where you'll be able to admire the majestic architecture and delve into the history and cultural heritage. The museum is housed in a kasbah with a beautiful view of the city. We'll take you to the UNESCO-listed Medina and lunch at a local restaurant. Aftrewards, we'll drive to Hammamet for a tour of the Medina, built in front of the sea with magnificent views of the rooftops. This town has attracted many artists over the years, including Claudia Cardinale and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others. Dinner and comfortable overnight stay in Hammamet. 

Day 3

Hammamet - Nabeul - Sidi Bou Said

After your breakfast in Hammamet, we'll drive to Nabeul, the city of crafts. You'll explore the Medina, a historic district filled with winding streets, colorful shops, and bustling markets. Nabeul is famous for its pottery and ceramic crafts and you'll be able to explore the city's many workshops and see the skilled artisans at work, creating traditional Tunisian plates and bowls. We'll drive back to Tunis and bring you to the bustling Medina, where you can enjoy the authentic atmosphere and local charm. You'll experience the enchanting Sidi Bou Said, widely regarded as the most beautiful town in Tunisia. You'll take a leisurely walk through the narrow streets, marvel at the traditional architecture, and soak in the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
