TUNISIA has an ideal climate and a long and gentle seacoast bordered by over 20kms of white, sandy beaches. Tunisia is a European country with African traditions. This heritage has been held in trust and preserved in hundreds of sites and museums from the small Punic museum in Utica to the vast collections of the prestigious National Museum of Bard.

Our school and hotel training school are located in Hammam Sousse, just outside of Sousse, which is situated on the East coast of the country and is Tunisia's third largest city with approximately 300,00 inhabitants.
Sousse is a city of contrasts from the historic Medina where you can buy just about anything to the modern coastal port and towns. The Medina is in the old part of Sousse and is surrounded by well-preserved walls. Souks and stalls line the street inviting the adventurous to barter for a good price.

Port El Kantaoui is part of Hammam Sousse and is a very modern resort situated 6 kilometers north of Sousse and 30 kilometers from Monastir. The resort is purpose built and centres around a marina where there are beautiful yachts all year-round. Students can take a pleasure cruise from here for the day to go deep-sea fishing or to take any of the numerous water sports available. There are very good, non-expensive restaurants and fabulous 5 star hotels where we have arranged for student placements. The El Kantouai golf course is nearby, and the port can be reached by taking the blue and white Noddy Train or taxi.

Try the camel caravan, go camel or horse riding into the forests, always accompanied by a guide. Or try the 4 wheel drive trail bikes for an afternoon's entertainment.

There are folklore festivals every day in summer with stories and legends of Arabian nights.

The town of Monastir lies 24 kilometers from Sousse. The ribat overlooking the beautiful coastline ranks as one of the oldest Arab fortresses in North Africa.

Take the road to Carthage, a fascinating day trip visiting Tunis, and step back in history at the Carthaginian and Roman ruins of Carthage. In the picturesque blue and white village of Sidi Bou Said admire the Moorish and Andalusian influence on Tunisian architecture.


Visit also the magnificent Roman Amphitheatre of El Dejma, where many films have been shot, including Star Wars. Hammamet and Nabeul are the two most important towns on the peninsula of Cap Bon, which is called the garden of Tunisia because of its lush green fertility. From the tip it is only about 100 miles to Sicily.

Take a 2 day trip to the South where you can ride a camel across the Sahara or visit the Oases.
See the towns of Gafsa and Tozeur where the rugs are famous. See the Berber tribes in Douz, which is the gateway for the safaris across the Sahara.

Apart from studying there is always something to do in Tunisia. Our students have a special pass to visit the Acqua-palace where there are water slides and all kinds of fun rides. Scuba diving is available at our hotel school right on the beach together with other water-sports.
