- Zaghouan and Hammamet
- Tunis - Thuburbu Majus - Hammamet (60 km).
Tunis – THuburbu Majus (60 km): Thuburbo Majus is one of the great Roman sites of Tunisia ,combining great ruins with an exceptional natural environment. Most great buildings date back to the 2nd century, but much of you see is still from the end of the 4th century, when reconstruction was performed after some decades of neglect.
Streets were often narrow, winding, and houses had few 90 degree angles. Even the two baths in this minor town, had irregular shapes. The remaining quarters is in an area of a modest 250 times 300 metres, but triumphal arches stand further apart, so the total town was several times bigger than that.
Still Thuburbo Majus was never a large settlement, perhaps housing some 7,000 to 12,000 people. Thuburbo Majus is still very much worth the visit, with its attractive Capitol, its several fine mosaic floors and the striking colours of its columns.
Thuburbu Majus - Zaghouan (40 km): Continuation to Zaghouan. It was an important town in Roman times, administering one of the most important water resources for Carthage. Then we Will continue to Zaghouan to visit of the temple of water. Lunch at a local retaurant.
