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.
