The temperature drops into the realms of warm to mild in Tunisia’s Mediterranean resorts during November. With an average maximum temperature of 20°C, Tunisia in November is heading for its cool, wet winter season, but is still very sunny. November is a very pleasant time to travel to Tunisia. November is also a good month for excursions into the southern desert regions of Tunisia, which remain dry, but offer bearable daytime temperatures, although nights are exceedingly cold.
- City of Hammamet
The conference will be held in Hammamet, a first tourist destination in Tunisia. Thanks to its beaches, Hammamet is a popular destination for swimming and water sports. It is located in the south east of the northern peninsula of Cap Bon on the northern edge of the Gulf of Hammamet. The reported number of inhabitants varies from 100,000 to 400,000 and the population quadruples due to tourists’ arrival in the summer. It is particularly known for jasmine, and this is how the tourist resort of Yasmine Hammamet got its name. All over Hammamet, souvenirs made of jasmine can be found.
