Summary

This is 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 more than 100 years, the conflict ultimately resulted in the destruction of Carthage and assured Roman ascendancy. Join us to explore the ruins of the Roman era in the beautiful, verdant North African countryside. Travel from the ruins of Carthage itself to the magnificent Roman cities and monuments of Roman Tunisia: the amphitheatre at El Djem, the beautiful, remote site of Dougga and vast intricate mosaics. These all bring the world of Roman Africa vividly to life.

In 2020 we are able to return to Bulla Regia, with its characteristic underground houses. The site covers more than 60 hectares with its range of Berber, Roman and Numidian archaeological influences.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the magnificent UNESCO-listed World Heritage Sites of Dougga and Kairouan
  • Discover the beautifully preserved Phoenician site of Kerkouane
  • Marvel at the grand amphitheatre at El Djem, which boasts underground service rooms
  • Admire some of the best mosaics in the world at the Bardo, Sousse and El Djem museums
  • Discover the little-known sites of Bulla Regia, Mustis and Ain Tounga
