DAY 01

Program Itinerary

  • You will visit an ancient city on this one, so get ready to step back in time to the age of the Gladiator. 

  • It begins with a coach ride to El Djem, which boasts some of the most impressive Roman ruins in Africa. This place even has a Colosseum to rival Rome’s – it once seated around 35,000 spectators, only 10,000 less than its Italian relative. It is so impressive, in fact, Ridley Scott filmed some of the scenes for the 'Gladiator' movie here. 

  • You will have a lot of time to look around – climb the stone steps for panoramic views of the Tunisian countryside, then head down to the dungeons and picture the slaves preparing for battle. 

  • After you have had time to explore, you will move on to the nearby El Djem Museum to get an insight into the games and battles that went on here.

  • 250 EUR Per Adult
  • Guided excursion to El Djem.

  • Courtesy hotel pick-up and drop-off.
