The attractions of El Djem, Tunisia

This city would not be worth a visit if there wasnt the famous amphitheatre of El Djem there. Very well preserved, it's worth to take a look and a couple of pictures.
But the modern village isn't really worth a visit. There are only some tourist shops and bars around that ancient place, but the rest of the town looks like a slum, so nothing much.
So just go there, if you are on a trip by car and dont take too much time for that place, you'll be otherwise disappointed.

To visit Tunis is to revisit history. One can not only see, but actually feel the many cultural and artistic influences from different periods of history.
