Day Excursion to Uthina Zaghouan and Thuburbo Majus from Tunis or Hammamet

From Tunis, the road runs alongside a partially restored Roman aqueduct, reminding that Tunis, since ancient times, has been drinking spring water from the mountain of Zaghouan.
Along the way, fans of archeology will appreciate the site of Oudna, a Punic city that has become Roman. The so-called “Laberii” villa with its thirty rooms on 2,300 m² deserves a special visit for its mosaics, an archaeological site well preserved includes an astonishing amphitheater that could once accommodate 20,000 spectators.
Then we will visit the Andalusian medina of Zaghouan, to finish with Thuburbo Majus, an ancient city that experienced a decline in the middle of the third century before a brilliant renaissance in the fourth century, leading it to proclaim itself Respublica Felix Thuburbo Majus.
The vandal invasion, in the middle of the fifth century, put an end to the prosperity of the city and brought it back to the rank of a town which soon after the Arab conquest was deserted.

    -Visite de la médina andalouse de Zaghouan:(1 heure ) ou les Berbères, les Puniques se sont installés sur les contreforts du Djebel Zaghouan depuis de nombreux siècles. puis rapidement les Romains ont en effet aménagés dans cette région pour capter et utiliser le bien le plus précieux pour toute civilisation : l’eau. En effet, plusieurs sources importantes existent au pied du djebel.C’est ainsi que les Romains ont construit, vers 130 après JC, l’immense aqueduc reliant la ville antique de Ziqua à Carthage, permettant d’alimenter la capitale en eau.Plus tard, les arabes se sont installés. La ville a subi une évolution majeure à partir de 1609, avec l’installation d’une importante communauté andalouse, chassée d’Espagne. La communauté a importé de nombreux savoir-faire architecturaux, culinaires et artisanaux que l’on retrouve encore de nos jours en parcourant la vieille ville. Enfin, l’époque coloniale, plus récente, a également laissé de nombreux témoignages.
