Lunch meeting with a Tunisian personality
As the initiator of the “Arab spring”, Tunisia was the impetus for the revolutions in the region. The country has always differentiated itself through its openness and its aspiration for democracy. In this exceptional politico-historical context, we can organise for you a lunch or dinner with Tunisians who are at the heart of the current changes: artists, intellectuals, campaigners, business leaders or mere employees who also happen to be players in civil society. You will have an amazing opportunity to exchange views with them and gain a better understanding of the challenges facing Tunisian society, away from the clichés and closer to the facts. This meeting will also allow you to find out more about the traditions, the cuisine and the local culture.
Explore the Medina of Tunis and the Art Nouveau of the capital
In the company of an urban architect and enthusiastic author, you will explore the capital: the secret establishments in the Medina and also modern Tunis and its Art Nouveau. The Medina has the ability to transport you to a unique world that stimulates all your senses. Enter the doors of 17th century palaces, roam the narrow, winding streets, discover the Tunis of days gone by and take the pulse of the modern Tunis in the Central Market, a series of covered halls where all the locals come together to do their shopping amid the joyful shouts of the greengrocers, butchers, fishmongers, cheesemongers, and other traders.
Nature and culinary hike at El Haouaria
A hike in the mountain overlooking the sea, the jbel El Haouaria. Your day begins with a breakfast where you can try out some regional products before trekking along the paths of the El Haouaria mountain. Your nature guide will tell you about the ecological importance of the region. The scent of thyme, rosemary and heather fill the air and, depending on the season, you can observe the migrations of numerous species of birds.
Lunch takes place in a hut that is mostly open to the surrounding countryside. And the day ends delightfully with an exploration of a forest of centuries-old olive trees.
