Ramble through the deserted, cobblestoned streets of Dougga, the best-preserved Roman town in North Africa and a World Heritage Site. Perched on a rocky hilltop above fertile plains, this archeological site features not only an ancient Roman capitol with a large theater, but also the remains of earlier structures, including a Punic-Libyan mausoleum. The small town prospered under Roman and Byzantine rules, during which its wealthy residents built 20 temples, misleading scholars to believe that this was a major religious site. Notice the intricate floor mosaics and look for the remains of Roman baths, a circus, and two triumphal arches. Put Dougga into our Beja Governorate trip maker app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Most of the remains have not been restored, but only unearthed after excavations that have for now covered only part of the surface of the ancient city. The visit was made even more fascinating by the competence and ability of the guide, the kind Mrs Mona, an archaeologist who speaks Italian very well. A site that would periper on far more than the few tens of thousands of visitors who today place it among their destinations.

Several people from Hammamet were picked up on the way. The road to the first stop (Temple of Water) took hours 2.5. The group gathered a small - 16 people. - direction, for some reason, unpopular. Part of the road in the foothills, in the mountains - very picturesque, sometimes just beautiful! Olive plantations, vineyards, tops in the clouds!. The Temple of Water is a very interesting object, well preserved. From this source water was supplied to Carthage and Terma. A quick guide's story, and free time to explore the subject and take photos....
Very interesting place and was a great surprise. I strongly recommend it.
One of the most special sites on earth. Authentic and pristine, cheap and also guided tours very cheap paid 20din for 1.5hrs pp. Stunning place!
