This quiet village, perched on a rocky spur, was the site of a WWII battle. Then it's on to Dar Zaghouan cottage for a cookery demonstration and lunch. Next, you'll drop by the Roman-era Zaghouan Water Temple en route to little-visited Uthina.

Sail Away

Many are the places that trade on their pirate past but few can actually match Tunisia's authentic heritage in this department. Your adventure begins the moment we sail from Hammamet harbour into the Mediterranean, just as the Barbary pirates did for centuries. But while they struck fear into European coastal communities as far afield as Iceland, we'll be going out to have wholehearted fun. There'll be swimming and snorkelling stops and plenty of time to dry off on-board in the sun. An exciting morning for the whole family, this pirate adventure in a replica Barbary galley is hard to beat.
