Stand before the mighty ancient amphitheatre of El Djem

A land where dramatic events shaped ancient history – the superpowers of Carthage and Rome clashed in three Punic Wars, which determined the course of Western history. Lasting over 100 years, this conflict resulted in the destruction of Carthage and assured Roman ascendancy. Superb sites and changing landscapes, from rolling hills and olive groves to sparkling sea, makes this an excellent tour.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit the incredible El Djem amphitheatre, Africa’s largest and best preserved
  • Gaze upon some of the world’s most impressive mosaics at the Bardo, Sousse and El Djem museums
  • Tour a selection of little-known sites, including Mustis and Ain Tounga as well as the Bulla Regia
  • Explore the UNESCO-listed sites of Dougga and Kairouan, and the beautifully preserved site of Kerkouane
