Full description
The day begins with pickup from your hotel in Sousse or Hammamet (depending on the option chosen), and travels back in time towards Dougga. Along the way stop at Testour to visit the Great Mosque, home to an incredibly unique clock with upside-down numbers and hands that turn anticlockwise. Arrive at Dougga, a UNESCO World Heritage Listed location which boasts one of the best preserved Roman towns in North Africa. Spend some time exploring this fascinating archeological site and learn about its impressive history. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, enjoy a traditional lunch (optional) to restore your energy. After lunch, continue the tour to the city of Zaghouan which is steeped in Andalusian heritage. Head to the Water Temple and admire this semicircular public fountain which is believed to be under the protection of Neptune. Next, stop by the Temimi Foundation, in the heart of the historical center of the city, and learn about the Moriscos people. Later, set off on a guided hike through the mountains to the quaint Berber village of Sidi Medien, which offers a unique insight into the history and culture of the region. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to your hotel.

Wir wurden von unserem Hotel in Hammamet abgeholt. Danach haben wir uns das UNESCO Weltkulturerbe von Thugga angesehen und die Moschee von Testour. In Zaghouan haben wir Mittag gegessen. Außerdem haben wir uns noch den Wassertempel vor Zaghouan angesehen. In Absprache, da in unserer Buchung noch Sousse enthalten gewesen wäre und es sehr zeitintensiv die Tour war, haben wir uns noch die Medina in Tunis angesehen. Insgesamt war es eine sehr schöne und sehenwerte Tour. Unser Guide Sourour ist auf alle Fragen eingegangen und hat uns alles erklärt ausführlich.
