Cape Bon Peninsula: Full-day Tour from Tunis or Hammamet

3. Cape Bon Peninsula: Full-day Tour from Tunis or Hammamet

After pickup from your hotel, start your tour with a visit to the Archeological Museum of Nabeul. Also know as Neapolis in ancient times, the city of Nabeul was founded in the 5th century BC. The Archeological Museum was renovated in 2003, and although it is only the size of a house, it boasts an amazing collection of mosaics and other rare specimens from various archaeological sites in the region of Cape Bon. Next, head to Kelibiya to explore the fortress of Kelibia, one of the most important monuments of Cape Bon. This historic fortress is built on a massive rock 150 meters high.

Near the end of the tour, enjoy a hike along the Ras ed-Ddar 393 meters above Cape Bon. From the summit marvel at an extraordinary view that extends all the way to Sicily on a clear day. Finally, visit the hot natural baths of Korbous before heading back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Tunis Governorate

The pickup at the hotel was right on time, which was a great start! We were driven to the point where we met Abdul, our guide, and our camels. The three hour camel ride to the camp was amazing - so peaceful. The camp was very well equipped and they did everything to make sure we were comfortable, including setting up beds outside, so we could sleep under the stars. The evening camel ride into the dunes was again wonderful, though very different from the morning ride. On our turn, we watched the traditional bread being cooked, followed by a delicious dinner. After a great night under the stars, we enjoyed a camel ride back to the pick up point.

I had the chance to spend this day with my sister and we loved the places visited, the activities discovered, the landscapes through which we passed. A driver at the top, and a special mention to the guide Mr. Achref, who knew how to make us travel through time to tell us the history of Tunis, he was very protective and ensured throughout our excursion that we lack nothing. He knew how to arrange and improve and made this trip away from Tunis unique. Just thank you for the experience, highly recommended.

Slim is a good guide. Great sites we visited as well.
