Located on the south east coast of the Cap Bon peninsula, Hammamet is the “Tunisian Saint-Tropez”, in a green setting with orchards of lemon and orange trees. You can also stroll through the markets in search of beautiful local pottery and stroll through the old town (Medina) whose walls date back to 1500 years. In summer, this is the time for music and theater festivals, not to be missed under any circumstances!
