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.
