We arrived in El Jem at about 2.30, the hottest part of the day, after driving from Kairouan. What really stands out in El Jem is what attracts most of its visitors: the famous amphitheatre. It's by far the most impressive building in the town and dwarfs everything around it.

    Bazza, I see what you mean about the amphiT. The Roman one is in a dense neighbourhood!

    Good photos! As far as I know, there has not been any destruction during WWII but from 1700 until around 1900, it was used as a quarry to build the city.

    Great photograps. I skipped the museum :-( - I didn't know about it and even... I was late in El Jem, shortly before sunset as I remember.
