Dugga in roman times

Culture and History tour in Tunis

Tour Price : $500 Duration : 7 hours Languages: English, French, Italian, Arabic Discount: 00

Tunisia is very rich in terms of history, as there were numerous civilizations inhabiting it over different periods of history. And what’s really fascinating is that there are very well-preserved places that can give you an idea of how people used to live in this country several thousand years ago. As your private guide in Tunis I will gladly take you to one of such places, making part of the UNESCO Heritage collection, and tell you everything I know about the town of Dougga, which is considered as the best preserved Ancient Roman settlements in the Northern Africa.
Settled around 2600 years ago, this city is located not far from the capital of Tunisia. Yet, it’s slight remoteness from the main trade cities and routes have served the settlement a great favor as it wasn’t rebuilt or re-inhabited by people who came here later. This place was usually well preserved without any innovations because throughout the centuries people understood its historic value and weren’t forced to build upon it like in the case of cities like Carthage that is located too close to Tunis. That’s why there are so many well preserved buildings, statues, temples and theaters to be found here. Some people will even say that Dougga features the Roman culture and life much better than the buildings in Rome. And they will be partially right since local structures have been left untouched for centuries.
During this private tour in Tunisia you will have more than 5 hours devoted to exploring Dougga and its numerous attractions. There are both Roman and Carthaginian features to be explored, which look very peculiar standing next to each other. You will see some of the most detailed monuments and well-preserved Roman structures in the world and will be able to easily imagine what it was like to live in a city like this more than two thousand years ago.
