Welcome to Central Tunisia
The Romans bequeathed this region a number of beguiling cities, now in ruins but on par with (or better than) what you'll find in Italy, with a fraction of the crowds and the ticket prices. The undoubted highlight is Dougga, spread over an enchanting hillside overlooking grain fields and gentle hills speckled with olive groves. Mix in abandoned Berber villages, left to the elements atop lonely mountains, and this patchwork of the past serves as a poignant symbol of central Tunisia’s sense of having been left behind. A visit here is a must for history lovers.
