    Stop At: The Great Mosque of Kairouan, Rue Sidi Abdelkader, Kairouan 3100 Tunisia

    Departure to Kairouan from your Tunis centrally located accommodation. The tour starts with the last two 9th century Aghlabid Basins which were among the greatest waterworks of the Middle Ages. The basins are seen from the top of the Tourist Information Building and they form an introduction to the foundation of Kairouan and its glorious age.

    Proceed to visit the 7th-century Great Okba Mosque, the oldest one in North Africa. Appreciate the powerful and beautiful expression of faith inherent in the 9th-century building. Proceed to the nearby Sidi Sahbi, to visit the 17th-19th-century building with its minaret & beautiful courtyards lined with green-blue tile work & white plaster stucco. Free time is given for individual discovery & shopping at the Medina.

    Lunch at a local restaurant. Moving to El Jem (70 km / 1h 15mn drive). El Jem’s amphitheater is the main attraction and is one of Tunisia’s most often visited sites. This monumental amphitheater, built in the mid 3rd century AD (230-240 AD), is the largest Roman monument left in Africa and ranks 3rd in the Empire after those of Rome and Verona. Being one of the last large amphitheaters built during the Roman era, its architectural design is an improvement over that of the Coliseum of Rome.
