Hanibal ante portas

Hammamet is probably the best known touristic sight of Tunisia, but it didn't impressed me at all. Jasmine Hammamet is completely new-bild city with plenty of shops and huge amusement park where this monumental elephants, a part of Hanibal's army, stands right in fromt of the main entrance.

The fortress of Hammamet

The small fortress of Hammamet is situated on the sea-shore, offering magnificent view to the old core of the town and huge bay in front of it. This is where the Medina (souk) of Hammamet is situated, which is crowded all day and night long.

The door

The doors of Hammamet, as well as in the rest of Tunisia, are very pitoresque and unusual. You wont find two doors with identical decorations, but most of it are coloured in light blu color of the sky.

    I visited Hammamet yasmine, I loved the holiday and I think there is lots going for it. In tunisia the ladies have a choice of what they wear, there are no strict guidelines for this country as it is very open compared to to other arabic countries.

    Why would you take a photo of someone who does not agree for you to take a photo of them? It is incredibly rude.

    I disagree with Niksa as I have seen in Hawai hotels that were even ugliest. Hammamet is the same than the French Côte d’Azur… It has been a nice place a long time ago… Now, it is OK to dwell and go to visit elsewhere around ! Superb photos of the medina.

    OMG! You can't be serious! That is the ugliest hotel building I've seen. Disneylands like this should be forbidden by the international law (IMHO). I'll be back to check the story of the colorful doors.
