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.

One of the best sights to visist in Tunisia. Huge space where you can travel into the ancient times and visit the Tunisia glorious history.
Incredible ruined Roman city. Mosaics, statues, a temple, a brothel, a bath house, a theater... all incredible sights. There were only four tourists (myself included) in the whole place when I was there. I’d recommend taking a little walk around by yourself to marvel in solitude at the mystery of the place place for a bit, then grab a guide and take a look around. Be sure to negotiate the price in advance, because he will try to gouge you if you leave the price discussion to the end! There are restrooms and a little shop to buy cold water at the top. If you want to do something nice, spend a couple dinar to buy an extra big cold water for the guide. He won’t buy it for himself, but he will really appreciate it in the desert heat.
