Things to do
A tour of Hammamet is a great way to spend a day and immerse yourself in the culture of the area. Tours can be done either on horse back or on quad bike, but either way you will be taken along the coast, through the hills and surrounding countryside and round traditional towns and villages.
The main historical feature of Tunisia is the Carthaginian ruins. It would be difficult to consider a trip to Tunisia truly complete without a day spent wandering around the ruins of this ancient empire. Carthage was a dominant player on the Mediterranean millennia ago before being sacked by the Roman Empire. The Romans may have waged war and brought down much of Carthage but they did repurpose many significant buildings, which are still intact today. The ruins of Carthage are around an hour’s drive away from Hammamet but are easily worth the trip and just as easily arranged through a tour company or a local transportation service. Note: it may be too far for a local taxi to go. At the grounds, there is a small admission fee to pay to enter the grounds but once inside there is a massive amphitheatre, cave, other ruins and a museum dedicated to the majesty and former glory of Carthage.
Where to eat & drink
Another option for classic English food, Steakhouse on the outskirts of Hammamet is popular with tourists. From a traditional English breakfast in the morning to steaks and roasted meats for dinner, Steakhouse has a taste of the familiar at almost any time of day. The owners are British expatriates so there is no language barrier and friendly faces with whom to speak about British culture. If you are traveling with children, Steakhouse will have an option that will keep picky eaters or the homesick happy. The restaurant also shows football matches when they are aired.
Where to stay
Sleek and modern, the Sindbad Hotel appeals to the modern or stylish travelers. Each room has contemporary, minimalistic design and that aesthetic continues throughout the grounds as well. The large outdoor pool is contained by a glass wall that overlooks the Mediterranean. No other hotel in the area can boast a unique pool. Despite the chic accommodations, the hotel is staffed by approachable and knowledgeable employees that have earned a friendly and excellent reputation.
