A ten minute or so taxi ride from Hammamet, Friday morning is market day in Nabeul. Here is a chance to buy all those things you cannot do without! Expect plenty of pretty good natured banter from the stall holders, every one of them wants you to look at his goods!
Enjoyed ourselves here!
"lovely Hammamet beside the sea"
There are 2 Hammamets - one set aside miles away south of the original for the tourists and their huge all included resorts and original Hammemet with its fort beside the sea.
Huge resorts, huge hotels, huge and grande scale - had a good drive around these roads of hugeness, and enoyed a stop along the way for a christmas eve coffee and then to a very nice but expensive restaurant for christmas seafood meal - well presented and professional staff.
and then back to Hammamet more for the locals?
"Sights around Hammamet"
I love architecture and one very pleasing visit was to the Villa Sebastian - now the Hammamet International Cultural Center where all sorts of conventions and festivals such as the Hammamet International Music Festival are held with plays, music, ballet in the ampitheatre there beside the sea.
Villa Sebastian is regarded as one of the most beautiful villas of the Mediterannean, set in beautiful gardens with over 300 species of plants, it was where prominent people such as Winston Churchill and Rommel and an array of artists came to visit and create.
