El Djem Amphitheater
The walls of the massive Roman amphitheater at El Djem dwarf the contemporary town that is located in the surrounding area (Ben Aissa & Goaied, 2017). This astonishingly well-preserved Roman remnant is Tunisia’s major tourist attraction, one of the most popular things to see on day excursions from the seaside resorts, and one of the greatest examples of amphitheater design anywhere in the world that is still intact. The massive size of the fortifications is a constant reminder of Rome’s once-impressive control over the whole of North Africa (Ben Aissa & Goaied, 2017).
You may still stroll the passageways under the stadium, exactly like the gladiators did when they were there. You could even go to the highest seating tiers and sit there while gazing out over the stadium and visualizing the fights that took place on the lower levels.
The island of Djerba is an excellent choice if you want to have a relaxing vacation on a beach that looks just as it does in pictures. The island town of Houmt Souk is the primary focus of attraction away from the shore. The old town section of the island town is a jumble of dwellings that have been whitewashed. The shopping in Houmt Souk is an attraction in and of itself, with a large number of handcraft dealers just off the shore that provide possibilities for browsing and bargaining (Ben Aissa & Goaied, 2017).
But the sandy stretches of beach that are located outside of town are by far the most popular attraction on the island. The beaches are a calming, get-away-from-it-all environment that inspire summer daydreams due to their pristine condition and the presence of date palms along their edges.
Carthage, the city of the maritime Phoenicians, was an adversary of Rome in the past and will be eternally immortalized in connection with the Punic Wars. It is important to remember that even the largest towns may be reduced to rubble, as shown by the evocative remains of this old town, which can today be found near the Mediterranean in the outskirts of Tunis (Ben Aissa & Goaied, 2017). The remains are vast yet dispersed, and if you’ve had the opportunity to see other ancient city sites that have been well preserved, such as Ephesus in Turkey or Volubilis in Morocco, Carthage may at first appear to be less impressive than the other places you’ve visited.
Grand Erg Oriental
The immense expanse of desert that is known as the Sahara in Tunisia is known as the Grand Erg Oriental, and it takes up the majority of the country’s interior (Ben Aissa & Goaied, 2017). The desert is home to some of the world’s tallest sand dunes. The ever-changing sands of the desert have sculpted these very poetically beautiful dunes into an otherworldly and breathtaking scene of gigantic waves.
It may be an adventure park for many tourists, with activities such as riding dune buggies and going on camel treks, but nothing beats the uncomplicated joy of sitting atop one of these enormous sand mountains and observing the sun set over the Sahara.
