Day 1

Thugga - Testour

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Tunis and drive you to Thugga/Dougga, an archaelogical UNESCO World Heritage Site which is considered the best preserved example of an African-Roman town in North Africa. As such, it is an exceptional illustration of what daily life was like in Antiquity. We'll do a short stop at an Andalusian village for cheese tasting and you'll enjoy delicious dishes for lunch served at a local farm.

Built on the Roman remains of Tichilla, the Old Town of Testour was a 16th-century shelter for the Muslim and Jewish refugees from Andalusia who gave a distinctive look to the town. Nestled in the fertile valley of the Medjerda River, the town is characterized by decorative Moorish architecture and urban planning traditions brought from Spain, including a grid layout with a main plaza and commercial area. Many structures remain from the 17th and 18th centuries, including mosques, a synagogue, and a Jewish cemetery. Testour is a rare surviving example in North Africa of this unique blend of Spanish and Mudéjar influences. You'll feel transported to another time and place through this picturesque town.
