Hammamet is one of Tunisia's most attractive beach-front cities. Its charm and blue and white color scheme are indicative of the true Tunisian experience, bringing soothing tranquility to international
travelers. Located just south of the Cape Bon peninsula, Hammamet offers sun and sand on spotless beaches with clear blue waters. The city offers a wide variety of
accommodations, with sports and an abundance of evening activities for all.
The houses of Hammamet are mostly white, with touches of blue, similar to the color of the sky and sea. The decorations on these houses are made of beautiful iron works, seen also on the windows. The city can be a bit much for those looking to
escape from the "tourist scene", however, definitely serves as a good entrance to this North African beauty.
The city's International Cultural Center, with its beautiful white arches surrounding the deep-blue waters is a remarkable example of the sea and sky oriented architecture found throughout Hammamet. Nor far away is Kairouan, the fourth holiest city in Islam, after Mekka, Medina and Jerusalem. Well preserved from the French influences, Kairouan maintains many Islamic attractions, including the well of Bi'r Baruta, said to have a direct link with the holy city of Mekka, and the ancient Great Mosque. This mosque is believed to be the oldest standing minaret in the world, and is open to visitors.
