Amphitheatre at El Jem

The Roman Empire - Tunisia & North Africa

Perhaps the largest and most powerful civilisation to have existed, the Roman Empire reached from the Persian Gulf and the coastal provinces of North Africa to the isolated settlements of northern England.

This vast empire reigned for thousands of years and gave birth to a modern world, influencing the populace with its own forms of philosophy, language, religion, law, the arts, cuisine and exquisite architecture.
