Advice on what areas to stay in for a 2 week visit to Tunisia

edited June 2010 in - Tunisia
I am going to Tunisia for the first time on a 2 week holiday. I would like some advice on where best to stay for a week on the coast to get nice beaches, good food and interesting local places to go out to in the evenings for drinks/markets/strolls etc. And for the 2nd week we want to move around a bit and see some other sights.
I have read a lot about Tunis and Hammamet - which would be nicer to stay at for the week?
Also, any restaurant recommendations would be great!!
Many thanks
Gemma

    Hi there Gemma,

    Tunis is our capital but I can't really recommend this as a beach holiday, it's crowded, loud but does have lots to do and see however, Hammamet is a very lively but touristique area with lots to see and do. I can also recommend Sousse which is not far away but has a fantastic medina. If you are looking for gorgeous beaches then take a look at Nabeul or Mahdia. Wherever you see Tunisians eating is good!!

    I hope you will enjoy your vacation here
