Silversea Expedition Cruises A SOUSSE

SOUSSE

With more than 270,000 inhabitants Sousse is Tunisia’s third-largest city. Located on the coast and bordering the Gulf of Hammamet, it is about 140 kilometers south of Tunis. Sousse’s origin goes back to Hadrumetum, a Phoenician settlement in the Tunisian Sahel. It was later used by Romans, Vandals and the Byzantine Empire, but eventually destroyed in the 7th century during the Muslim conquest of North Africa. View more

By the year 800 a border defense was set up at present day Sousse and it became an important commercial and military port under the Aghlabids. Located next to the port, several of Sousse’s old structures are still well-preserved and are listed as “Historic Monuments”, among them the Kasbah, the Medina of Sousse with the Great Mosque, the Bu Ftata Mosque and the Ribat, the most ancient and best-preserved fort and religious building. This complex has been considered to be a unique prototype of military coastal architecture of the first centuries of Islam and one of the best examples of seaward-facing fortifications built by Arabs by UNESCO. This harmonious example of Arabian-Muslim urbanism was given World Heritage status. Although olive oil manufacture has been one of the main economic activities, tourism has played an important role since the 1960s. A harbor and beach promenade running for some 10 kilometers along fine sandy beaches and hotels is used by visitors and locals alike. The Archaeological Museum houses important Roman mosaics and artefacts from the Roman Christian catacombs.

Excursiones en SOUSSE

El Djem Amphitheater - a UNESCO World Heritage Site rates as one of the most impressive Roman monuments in North Africa. This ancient colosseum dwarfs the matchbox buildings of the modern town. Its 427m outside circumference is 100m shorter than the Colosseum in Rome. It was constructed in the early 3rd century and may well have been the last such amphitheater built in the Roman Empire.


Depart from the port of Sousse for the scenic one hour drive to El Djem, known as Thydrus in ancient times, was one of the richest Roman cities in North Africa in the 3rd century. Visit the amphitheater, which is considered the third largest in ancient roman times. Its three floors could accommodate more than 35,000 spectators. The amphitheater was used for filming some of the scenes from the Academy Award winning film Gladiator starring Russell Crowe. The tour will conclude with a visit the museum before returning to the pier.

From the port of Sousse enjoy the scenic 1.25 hour drive to Kairouan, the first city of Islam in North Africa and the fourth holiest city in the Islamic world. Visit the Aghlabite pools, built by Emir Ibrahim during the 9th century, the great mosque of Okba, built in 1670 by the famous conqueror Okba Ibn Nefaa; who established there the capital of Arab- Muslim Ifriquia and the holy city of Islam, and the Zaouia Sidi Sahbi, called the barber's Mausoleum - it contains the tomb of a companion of the prophet Mohammed who chose to live in Kairouan.


Kairouan is also world renowned for its carpets, leather goods and brassware. Enjoy some free time to explore around the old city called Medina before being served lunch.
