Modern town
Hammamet, Tunisia

Hammamet, Tunisia

Hammamet, Tunisia

Hammamet's modern town is truly all about tourism, with pedestrian-friendly streets and boulevards lined with restaurants and shops. The centre is rather small, located along two avenues, which start right at the gates to the medina before they lead up the hill.
There is nothing special to look out for, architecture isn't worth mentioning until you get out to the best hotels.
