A walk along the coast, beautiful sea and very nice residences, stop at the medina, full of shops with local handicrafts and then at the railway station, destination Mahdia. The ancient city stands on a rocky peninsula connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus.We enter the citadel through the spectacular Skifa, the gateway to the city, its most important symbol, from here we reach the medina formed by narrow streets where souvenir shops stand , carpets and objects. Walking along the rocky coast overlooking the sea we reached the kasbah, almost impregnable, Mahdia had to be a city-refuge, able to withstand any type of siege.

Leaving the fortress and skirting the sea, we arrived at the end of the promontory, at the tip of Capod’Africa. Here there is an immense cemetery called the "marine cemetery", with Muslim graves surrounding a lighthouse and the Punic port. A lunch in the center of the city and then return to the train destinationSousse. Back at the hotel, we went up to the terrace and took many photos, shooting the city from above, here the scenery is spectacular. Walk in the city, promenade and medina enjoying these last moments in this wonderful city.
