A missed weekend is worse than a Monday. That’s for sure! But, we usually think that having a good weekend requires hours of preparation. Let’s debunk this: if you're in Tunis, just keep yourself updated with the activities available, buy your tickets and forget about the housework.  

 

Resting and relaxing is good. Making the most of your weekends is better. Weekdays swing between work responsibilities and the complexities of personal life. We all need some time to devote to our well-being and fulfillment. Weekends are supposed to be made for this. 

 

Start planning your weekends now! 

 

Learning Workshops: 

 

Learning new skills is always a good idea. Say goodbye to the deadly routine and step out of your comfort zone with interesting learning activities.  

 

WildyNess recommends a few workshops for you and your children, if you have any. 

 

Sculpture Workshop

 

Translating an idea to a sculpture is an art. Making your first sculpture can be life challenging, but also satisfying. To proceed as smoothly as possible, attending a workshop can help you quickly understand the basics of this art.

DIY Workshops (Do-It-Yourself)

Crafting combines passion, skill and freedom. If you lack the know-how, creative workshops are there to help you pursue your passion and achieve the personal fulfillment you seek.  

 

At first it may seem difficult and complex, maybe uninteresting and unattainable too. Once you get your hands in the pasta, you'll find out that it's totally the opposite: simple, fun and original. These creative arts help you get out of your comfort zone and channel your creativity. 

 

WildyNess recommends some creative DIY workshops where you can be equipped with the right materials and guidance to facilitate your initiation.  

 

Transform Glass Bottles into Unique Creations

 

If there is one reality about the world we’re sure of, it would be the impact of waste on our planet. Glass bottles are not an exception. While glass, as a material, is 100% recyclable, the right measures to turn all glass into recycled items are not fully implemented.

If you care enough about this, you will be happy to hear about this workshop that enables you to turn your glass bottles into unique creations. Instead of throwing your wine, beer or water bottles, give them a chance to have a second happy life.

While you’re around Tunis, there are a few hikes you can go for nearby as well as interesting archeological sites you can visit. 

 

The best part of it: no need to have a car. All of these regions are accessible via taxis and trains.

Guided Tour to Carthage Archeological Site: 

 

If you want to impress any Tunisian, talk to them about Carthage, Hannibal and Elissa. In case you want to flex on your non-Tunisians friends, time to talk about this part of history and geography.

 

Testifying for 3,000 years of history, Carthage is better explored with a local guide or a guide notebook. This way, you’re sure you know about the Punic, Roman, Byzantine, and Crusader eras.

What better can you do during a weekend other than exploring the Antoninus Bath, Roman villas, Malaga cisterns, Byrsa Hill?

Culinary Experiences

 

Tunisia is one of those countries that have a strong culinary heritage, sometimes hidden in the alleys of the cities and in the kitchens of grandmothers. In Tunis, we were not looking for gastronomy only, but for discovering the hidden history of a cuisine that is not known for everyone. 

 

Without moving to other cities, La Medina offers you the opportunity to discover the culinary art and food secrets of the country. 

 

WildyNess suggests some addresses that will make you happy. 

 

Yoga and Brunch in La Medina, Tunis: 

 

On lazy Sundays, we do yoga and eat delicious Tunisian brunch. Sundays always remind you to that it’s not too late to refill your battery before Monday.

This yoga and brunch morning allows you to have a stroll in la Medina, get tantalized by the smell of Tunisian food coming from the kitchen windows, and then move your body smoothly in a typical Tunisian house and spoil your taste buds with a great brunch.
