Dougga (or Thugga as it's sometimes known), is the best preserved Roman city in Africa. It's set in a beautiful picturesque setting, surrounded by pastureland and olive-groves over rolling hills in which it overlooks. You get a great idea of why it was built here and what life was once like for its residents by walking around the ruins and taking in the views.

For Roman buffs, it simply can't be missed if you're thinking of coming to Tunisia. Highlights include the imposing Capitole, the 3,500 seat theatre and some 21 temples as well as many fine villas, bathing houses and even a brothel.
