Overview of your Tunis tour:

Let's venture into the former Uthinae, nowadays Oudna, an old roman colony from the ancient Numidia Kingdom in Africa, as reflected by its name. This Carthaginian city reached its apex during the Roman Empire and it was one of the first roman colonies in the African continent. Roman veterans and Horatian soldiers (from one of the 35 Servian thrives of ancient Rome) established themselves in the city and started the romanization of the territory. With its fertile grounds and beautiful countryside, Uthina it is also one of the most wonderful archaeological sites in Tunisia, not far away from the city of Tunis (about 25 km). On this tour we'll explore remains that date back to the Punic wars between Carthage & Rome, such as the largest house of Uthina (more than 20 romes!) We'll be seeing very well preserved monuments, an amphitheater, the Capitol, public baths & we could even visit underground houses people used to live in.
