Private tour Roman Tunisia
Culture and History tour in Tunis
Tour Price : $250 Duration : 8 hours Languages: English, German, Spanish, Portuguese
A large layer of Tunisian history is strongly associated with Rome. At first, it was the Phoenician empire of Carthage that rivaled its northern Mediterranean peer and fought fiercely for domination in the region. Then, after the empire’s defeat, the Romans came to inhabit modern day Tunisia and built numerous cities all around the country. So if you’re fond of Roman history and want to see well-preserved remains of the once glorious Roman Empire, this private tour in Tunis is exactly the package to make your vacation even more thrilling and informative. Within a single day you will discover two of the most impressive locations associated with Rome in Tunisia.
First, your private guide in Tunis will take you to Bulla Regia - one of the most peculiar Roman-period locations in the country. It poses a great interest for historians and tourists alike because it doesn’t look like a traditional Roman city. Founded by Berbers long before the Romans took over the country from Carthaginians, this city features many houses that are partially located underground with the scope to escape the usual heat of the sun. There are many beautiful frescoes to be admired in the old houses, dating more than two thousand years back. And the local museum features many interesting artifacts found at the excavation sites.
The second destination of this tour is the wonderful town of Dougga. Many specialists agree that it’s one of the best conserved small Roman towns in Northern Africa, and as you wander through its streets and remains of once colorful buildings, you will actually understand why it is such a popular place for fans of Roman culture. Explore the Capitol, the magnificent temples and the beautiful villas that were homes to local noble citizens. After exploring the wonders of Dougga we’ll return to the capital.
