Tunisia Things to Do: 757 reviews and 1,154 photos


Visiting the Roman remains of Thuburbo Majus.
Another great site. Not as well preserved as Dougga, but offers some unique monuments. Pay attention to the following things during your trip to Thuburbo
Majus: ------ The Forum and the Capitoline Temple dominating the site. ---- Winter baths: once there were a luxurious building with more than 20 decorated rooms ----- Summer baths: that included hot, warm and cold rooms. The mosaics from both winter and summer baths are now in the Bardo Museum in Tunis. ----- Palestra of the Petronii named so after the family that has donated it to the city. It was also a place where public meetings took place.
