Travel back into Tunisia’s Roman past as you observe world famous sites on a half-day tour. See the magnificent amphitheater in El Djem before enjoying a tour of Monastir, a former fishing port on the coast. Your expert guide provides an informative historical and cultural narrative as you go.

Start your tour with a visit to some of the most impressive Roman archeological remains in Africa, the town of El Djem. Here, the enormous amphitheater dominates the city center, topped in size only by the eminent Colosseum in Rome. Learn about the venue’s uses in modern popular culture as you observe other points of interest in the former ancient city of Thysdrus.
