Things to do
With a history as long as Tunisia’s, it’s easy to be unimpressed with buildings that are only decades old. However, George Sebastian Villa is a remarkable building that has been a feature of Hammamet since the 1930s. This sprawling building has pools, orchards and manicured lawns that are tended to with varying attention depending on what time of year you go. The building itself is impressive and has even gained the attention of Frank Lloyd Wright, the famous American architect, who once said it was “the most beautiful house” he had ever seen. The villa also has historical significance as it once housed Rommel during the German campaign across northern Africa during World War II.
Paintball Tunisie course is just outside of Hammamet. This paintball course is owned by a larger company that operates others throughout the country of Tunisia. This course is much more elaborate than that of Zizou and has manmade obstacles to create a more challenging experience. At Paintball Tunisie, you can use the course in smaller groups and even zip line over certain areas of the course.
Where to eat & drink
Le Voilier is another restaurant that flawlessly brings together many cuisines onto one menu. Le Voilier boasts a menu with some of the widest range of seafood options in the city, all touched with a Mediterranean influence, from Morocco to Italy to Greece to Turkey. You’ll be able to take a tour of Mediterranean cuisines when you sit down to dine at Le Voilier, which is held in high regard by tourists and locals. Of course, there are non-seafood options for those who do not like it so everyone in your party will enjoy their meal there.
