Day Three: Activities

After breakfast, organization of activities:

Option One: Paintball
Paintball is the sport that can offer the least distinctions between ages and sexes of the participants. Paintball does not require exceptional physical condition. It is a mixture of physical, mental, tactical and group synergy. It includes all aspects of other sports: communication, understanding, strategy, racing, speed, alertness! The outdoor Paintball Park (capacity: 60pax one time) is 200 acres of woods divided into two paintball playing fields.

Option Two: Visit of Tunis
Departure to visit the Bardo Museum and the Medina of Tunis.

The Bardo Museum is situated in the old palace of the bey, in what was the countryside before, and offers both itself and the exhibits to be admired. The tour around the museum is a tour through Tunisian history, though dominated by Punic, Roman and Christian periods. The best exhibits of more recent times are the remains of the palace itself, even if this of course does not give a fair representation of general life styles of its time. It is one of the most seminal museums in the world. It displays relics from a long history stretching from remote prehistoric times to the contemporary epoch. It houses the largest mosaic collection of the world’.

Continuation to the Medina of Tunis. We suggest a guided visit through the winding streets of Tunis' old town, an opportunity to see the rich cultural heritage of old walled city and to discover the exquisite craftsmanship of Tunisia's artisans.

"Souk" is the Arabic name for market; 'medina' is the Arabic name for town. In Tunis today, the souk is also called medina. And there is a good reason: most of what once was Tunis is today like one enormous shopping centre and handicrafts factory. Today, the medina is still inhabited, but only a small percentage of the total population of Tunis lives in these quarters.

  • Lunch in the best Tunisian restaurant in the medina of Tunis: Dar El Jeld.
    This restaurant is "special" and you know it from the moment you see the "grand bee-yellow" door, which leads to an "elaborate 18th century mansion". The decor is a bit like a "lavishly decorated jewelry box" and the dining room is "magnificent". The "alcove" tables are arranged around a "secluded" courtyard. The Tunisian dishes are "delicious" and the "twanging tones" of and "elderly" musician accompany your meal.
  • Assistance and transfer to Tunis airport for the trip back home.
