Fly from London to Monastir or Endfida with Thomson. Transfer to your hotel in Tunis.Dinner and overnight in hotel in Tunis. Depending on your arrival time you may wish to head out to the Medina with it's concentration of streets and souks in the heart of the old city.Overnight: Hotel Le National (D)
Carthage Sidi Bou Said
The first main site today is Carthage. Founded around 815 BC by the Phoenician Queen Dido, Carthage grew to be the most important and powerful trading centre on the Mediterranean and in the known world. Today many of the ruins date from the Roman period but you will also see the two ancient Punic harbours, once the very foundation of Carthaginian prosperity. There is plenty of time to enjoy a comprehensive tour of the site. En-route back to Tunis a stop will be made to visit the charming ancient Andalucian village of Sidi Bou Said where scarlet bougainvillaea cascade over the walls of the narrow streets, and colourful shops overflow with carpets, pottery and jewellery. Then on to the brilliant Bardo Museum, housing the most fabulous mosaics dating from Roman times. Overnight: Hotel Le National (BLD)
Dougga, Bulla Regia, Le Kef.
This morning you head 100 km due west to the ancient city of Dougga, the best location of any of Tunisia’s ancient ruins set amongst the plains with its picture postcard grand imperial monuments improbably intact. You will have a guided tour of the archaeological sites. The next stop is Bulla Regia where you visit its underground villas. These amazing villas were built by the wealthy inhabitants and many of them still have their beautiful mosaic floors intact. Next you visit the roman site of Chemtou to see the impressive results of ancient industrial archaeology which have been sympathetically displayed and interpreted in a superb museum. Finally head to Le Kef and check into your hotel. Overnight: Hotel Leklil (BLD)
You visit the old Kasbah dating back to the 17th century and explore the town of Le Kef. Then you head south to Sbeitla, visiting the very well preserved extensive Roman site, built around the year 3 BC. Where as many Roman cities were quarried for stone down the centuries, Sbeitla has remained relatively untouched apart from a little refortifying under the Byzantines. This makes the complex Forum temples highly photogenic. Our final stop is Kairouan. Overnight: Hotel Continental (BLD)
El Djem Fly Home
An early start, visiting the spiritual and religious capital of Tunisia, Kairouan. The city was the first base for the conquering Arab Muslim armies from the east back in the 7th century. Still surrounded by its historic town walls, you visit the Great Mosque and can also visit the Islamic Art museum, time depending. Next, you will venture to to the spectacular El Djem coliseum (approx 3 hours), arguably Tunisia’s greatest highlight – the Amphitheatre of El Djem. The tiny town of El Djem - little more than a village really - stands at the centre of an extensive plain covered with olive trees. Somewhat incongruously for such a small place, it’s the site of an enormous amphitheatre – the third largest in the Roman world (after the Colosseum in Rome and Capua near Naples), and the largest Roman monument in North Africa. After Emperor Hadrian fostered the planting of olive trees, the town became such an important centre of olive oil production that its population reached 30,000. Quite who took the decision to construct such a huge building remains unknown, but it was never completed. It was obviously a massive undertaking as the nearest quarries are around 30kms away, and although the stone is relatively soft and so easy to cut, it still had to be transported to the site! The amphitheatre remains incredibly intact and you can climb up several storeys for a great overall view. You can even explore the tunnels under the arena itself where the animals and gladiators would have waited before being released into the bright sun to fight for their lives. It is not difficult to imagine what it was like when the Romans enjoyed the spectacle here or the atmosphere as swords clashed.
Finally, arrive in Sousse (approx 1 hour) where you will spend your last night in Tunisia. Sousse wears many hats as it is a commercial port, tourist beach resort and an old fortified medina. It is this last element that interests us most and you’ll spend the morning exploring the narrow twisting alleyways of the old town. Stalls selling everything from spices to trinkets spill out onto the streets; the variety is amazing and really gives a flavour for North Africa.Overnight: Hotel Medina (BLD)
