Be awestruck by the fascinating archaeological site of Dougga, and the Temple of the Water in Zaghouan, when you take our amazing trip from Tunis. You will discover two of Tunisia's historical gems.
Dougga and Zaghouan Trip
After picking you up from your hotel, we will move to Dougga, in the northwest of Tunisia.
We will start with a guided tour of the amazing archaeological site of Dougga declared UNESCO World Heritage. This is one of the best-preserved ancient cities in North Africa and during the tour, you will see the cultural legacy left behind by the Carthaginian, Roman, and Byzantine empires.
We will visit the spectacular amphitheater of Dougga, which was able to hold more than 3,000 spectators. We will also observe the influence of ancient Rome in front of the Capitol building, a temple dedicated to the deities of Minerva, Juno, and Jupiter. You will encounter the perfectly preserved elegant Roman baths decorated in elegant mosaics.
Next, we head to the nearby town of Tabursuq. There you will have about an hour of your own free time for lunch at a wonderful venue such as the Hotel Thugga. After lunch, we go to the town of Zaghouan, where we will visit the fascinating Roman Water Temple carved into the side of a mountain. This sacred place was built by the emperor Hadrian in honor of the nymphs. From this area of natural springs, water was traditionally transported to Carthage via the aqueduct of Zaghouan.
At the end of our exciting trip, we will take you back to your hotel.
