Great fun in this city during summer. Quite dull in winter. During summer, it becomes very lively with an amazing night life and good places to eat. Also, Carthageland in Yasmin Hammamet during summer is great. I would recommend 2 restaurants: le barberouse and le petite pecheur. The second is mid priced so always crowded and you have to wait...

We like to visit historical places and sight see.We were unable to stop and look around without being given the hard sell.The traders would do better to stand back and let people just brows

Imagine tasting a delicious green tea seated on a souk - castle - large staircase, decorated from one end to another by comfy pillows of every colors, listening to a deliciously smooth r´n´b kinda sound and smoking apple tunisian chicha at the end of another warm afternoon, relaxing for the evening slowly arriving and spreading a gentle jasmine odor all...

Not much to see there but the panorama from the Fort (museum) is definitely worth seeing. This is the place from which all the most famous photos of Hammamet are done. Also, down from the Fort (the so-called Medina) there is a walking lane, right by the sea. Worth walking there too. Also, some shopping around. But nothing really special... More

We visited in September 20114, entrance was 7 Dinars each plus 1 Dinar to use our camera inside the Fort. There is information displayed in the inside areas but unfortunately this is not in English. Climb the stairs for some great views of Hammamet and the beach. It was definitely worth paying to use our camera. It was very peaceful... More

You need to be careful you don't get enticed into buying things you don't want, especially at prices that are way above, even after haggling, prices at shops elsewhere.

Great place in historic style opposite to the modern part with the hotels. Take a walk in this historic part and you will see traditional architecture and way of life.
