  El Djem
by grets

The world's sixth largest amphitheatre has unfortunately sufferede from the ravages of time and the locals pilfering the stone for their house construction.

I personally preferred this to the amphitheatre in Rome.

The three tiers of seating could house 30,000 spectators, and would draw people from all over North Africa.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
