You'll leave the port and drive to the National Museum, with its historical exhibits, to get an insight into the daily lives and cultural background of the region. Your next stop will be the Grand Mosque - a living example of Islamic grandeur - which is the largest mosque in the island and can accommodate 7,000 worshippers. You'll then drive to the Ancient Saar settlement from the Delmon Civilization, dating back to the second millennium BC. Your last stop before returning back to the ship will be the A'Ali Burial Mounds, which date as far back as the third millennium BC.
