Dougga & Bulla Regia

The ruins of the ancient Roman town of Dougga, located on the edge of the Tebersouk Mountains and overlooking the fertile, wheat-growing valley of the Oued Kalled, remain remarkably complete and provide a fascinating glimpse of how the Romans would have led their lives between the baths, theatres and temples.

Why visit Dougga & Bulla Regia?

Approximately two hours drive to the west of Tunis lie the fascinating sites of Dougga and Bulla Regia.

 

Reaching its peak of prosperity in the 2nd – 4th Centuries AD, when it was home to an estimated 5000 people, Dougga still boasts an amazingly preserved theatre and the imposing hilltop Capitol monument.

 

Bulla Regia is the only example of a subterranean classical city and is famous for its extraordinary underground Roman villas, complete with colonnaded courtyards. You can visit several of these villas, which have been excavated, as well as the baths, forum, temples and theatre at the site.
