Tour Overview


After the Roman Empire conquered Carthage, Julius Caesar resurrected the city into a vast metropolitan that was almost comparable to the grandeur of Rome. Its ancient structures, robust museums and vast array of shrines showcase the remnants of a history we can easily immerse ourselves in. The temples of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva in Sufetula are only a small fraction of the legacy that spans throughout Tunisia. We will have the opportunity to relax just as some of the ancient rulers relaxed when we experience the Aghlabite basins, which are historically known for their appeal. The challenging landscapes certainly offered a variable foundation for the Roman Empire to build their many interesting cities; the beautiful houses of Dougga are situated on the steep slopes of green, lush hills; and the underground dwellings of Matmata have been carved out of the soft sandstone. Once we touch down on Malta, we will be faced with an even greater mixture of magnificent architecture and breathtaking terrain. When examining the layout of Gozo villages, we can see the potential of true human ingenuity when inspired by a veritable paradise.
