The magic of Tunisia's desert, cultural heritage and beautiful architecture await you on this El Djem, Douz & Kairouan 2 Day Trip. Visit some of the country's most symbolic sites.

El Djem, Douz & Kairouan 2 Day Trip

Day 1: El Djem – Matmata – Douz

Around 7 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Hammamet and head to the El Djem amphitheatre, a place that will surely leave you speechless. Did you know that it is the third largest amphitheatre in the world? It could hold up to 30,000 spectators who would go to watch the gladiator fights.

After listening to the curious ancient gladiator stories, we'll go to the Matmata cave-houses, in the Berber area. These houses, dug out of the mountains, serve as shelters for their inhabitants from the harshness of the desert. Here you'll have approximately one hour of free time to have lunch at a local restaurant (not included).

The tour will continue by entering the Douz desert, known as the gateway to the Sahara desert. While observing the extensive sandhills you'll have the chance to try out a quad bike ride or a camel ride. 

After our adventure in the desert, we'll head to a hotel in Douz so you can rest and enjoy a delicious

Day 2: Douz – Chott Djerid – Oasis - Gafsa - Kairouan

Once you've had breakfast (not included) we'll go to Chott El Djerid, Tunisia's great salt lake. An impressive location that stretches for 250 kilometres (155 miles) from east to west. 

Then we'll head to the Atlas range to visit the mountain oasis of  Chebika and Tamerza. And having eaten in Gafsa, the final stop on the 2 day trip will be Kairouan, Islam's fourth holy city. We'll have the opportunity to admire the Great Mosque, an important place of worship in this religion.

The tour will end taking you back to your hotel in Hammamet.
