Ancient Rome is filled with glorious examples of ancient architecture and one of them is the El Jem Amphitheatre. This famous venue hosted a range of intense and violent battles. Gladiators faced off while attendees watched them fight…sometimes, to the death. However, this certainly isn’t the only amphitheater which was constructed during the colorful days of the Roman Empire. Another example is the famous Colosseum.
You’ve probably seen the film, Gladiator, which stars Russell Crowe. Its battle scenes were filmed in El Djem, which is a city in Tunisia. El Djem features many striking Roman remains and it’s located within the African continent. Many tourists travel from Monastir and Sousse to El Djem in order to have a look around. Some are Gladiator fans and some just love checking out historical ruins.
A lot of people use taxis in order to get around. These taxis are called (louages) and they are minibus share vehicles, which are available to ride in for affordable prices. Those who travel solo may inquire as to where (louage) stations are found. These larger cabs/minibuses are able to travel to many different cities within the nation.
If you want to see El Jem Amphitheater, you’ll find that getting around via (louages) is definitely a cost-effective decision. It’s really convenient, too. Tickets cost just 7 Tunisian dinar, which equates to just three bucks from Sousse. (Louages) run all week long, so you won’t be out of luck on the weekends.
