After being picked up from your Tunis accommodation, set off for Kairouan.

Witness the monuments from the top of the Tourist Information Building as you gain an introduction to the foundation of Kairouan and its glorious age. After this, continue the tour with a visit to the 7th-century Great Okba Mosque, the oldest mosque in North Africa. Appreciate the powerful and beautiful expression of faith inherent in the 9th-century architecture. Proceed to the nearby Sidi Sahbi, to visit the 17th-19th century building known for its minaret and beautiful courtyards lined with green-blue tile work and white plaster stucco. Then, arrive at the entrance to the Medina for a guided walk through the main street and up to the mystical "Bir Barrouta". Spend some free time strolling through the Medina and shopping. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant.  Finally, climb back into the vehicle and take a 1 hour and 15-minute transfer to the El Jem amphitheater - the main attraction of the tour and one of Tunisia's most visited sites.  Discover how this monumental amphitheater was built in the 3rd-century and is the largest Roman monument left in Africa, ranking 3rd in the Empire after those in Rome and Verona.

Discover the Palace nejma ezahra, the luxurious residence that Baron Rodolphe d'Erlanger built at the beginning of the 20th century. Between its paintings and musical instruments from the 20s and 30s, it is a masterpiece in the true sense of the word Visit Dar Alaïa; situated at the peak of the hill of the mythical village of Sidi Bou Saïd, it is an exhibition-tribute to the great Tunisian couturier Ezzedine alai. Depart then to visit Carthage and discover its exciting story through the ruins and a visit to the American Cemetery. The cemetery consists of a few acres of grass, flowers, and a wide variety of century-old trees that are the resting place of the 3,000 soldiers who gave their lives during the Second World War.
