"Popular adventurer stop-over" El Jem Favorite Tip by Willettsworld

El Jem General: 11 reviews and 22 photos

Favorite thing: This place is a popular refuge for those desert adventurer types in their 4x4's and on their motorbikes. There were a couple of large parties pulled up near the colloseum entrance. The cafe/restaurant is littered with stickers from various exhibitions to Tunisia's desert south and beyond. Ewan Mcgregor and Charley Boorman stopped off here as part of their Long Way Down series for the BBC when they rode BMW R1200GS's from John O'Groats at the northern tip of Scotland, to Cape Town at the southern tip of Africa but I couldn't find their sticker!
