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.

Then discover the ruins of Kerkouane, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before continuing on to Ghar el Kebir, to visit the caves of Haouaria. These artificial caves were dug by prisoners and slaves under the authority of the Carthaginians and Romans. The blocks of stone that were extracted were shipped by sea to Carthage, on the other side of the Gulf of Tunis.

What people are saying about Nabeul‎

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.
