Departure on Friday Sept. 06, 2013 early in the morning after breakfast, we will visit:
*El Jem where you can visit the largest monument left from the Roman time and tracing back to the 3rd century: the coliseum. The stop will be for a good hour to walk around the arena and go underneath it to see where wild animals were kept before being used for the amphitheatre games (something people can only do in Tunisia as the monument is the most preserved coliseum in the world).
*Matmata village, a unique village in Tunisia known for the underground cave dwellings. We will visit one of those troglodyte houses.
*Douz City «the gateway of the Sahara» in Tunisia, you can go for an optional camel ride for a full hour to feel the sensation of being on the real sand dunes of the biggest Sahara desert in the world.
*Ksar Ghilane village, Ksar Ghilane is the most visited outpost in the far south of the country. This village is located at the starting point of the Sahara desert in Tunisia and home to the Grand Erg Oriental sand dune, which has the most stunning views and has provided the backdrop to many Hollywood films.
At Ksar Ghilane you will appreciate the opportunity to relax and take in the unique atmosphere of the desert. However, for the more active there is the chance to try camel trekking or quad biking over the spectacular dunes.
