The Colosseum in El Jem is an incredible sight. It is near the size of the one in Rome and is open to explore. You can climb to it's highest point, and go undernear to the old pits. Tourists are not nearly as plentiful during the low season, so there are times that you share this huge building with only a handful of people. We spent an hour walking up and down it's stairs. I'm sure a much more informed or curious mind could do more.

Address: Town centre
Directions: You can not miss it as you enter the city, it stands very tall.
