Dougga

They call Dougga, the Roman city with a view. And what a view. Set overlooking an enchanting hillside surround by groves of olives and fields of yellow grain. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage in 1997, you can glimpse into the lives of the wealthy. 

Romans were keen to show off their temples, especially the 3500 seated theatre, rivalling others in their wake. Built on the ancient site of a Numidian settlement, you can understand why the streets are tangled. 

Admire the Temple of Juno Caelestis, surrounded by a semi-circular portico, the Carthaginian goddess, Tanit, continued to worship here in secret. These monuments, are the best preserved in the whole of the Roman world and date back to the second and third centuries.
