The remote Berber villages of Tunisia's Atlas Mountains are about as far away from modernity as you can get. You'll be whisked away in a 4x4 to visit the hamlet of Takrouna as well as the Roman ruins of Zaghouan and Uthina. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
Your adventure begins the moment you leave your hotel for Takrouna. This quiet village, perched on a rocky spur, was the site of a WWII battle.
Then it's on to Dar Zaghouan cottage for a cookery demonstration and lunch. Next, you'll drop by the Roman-era Zaghouan Water Temple en route to little-visited Uthina. Admire the amphitheatre – where up to 16,000 spectators watched gladiatorial combats – and mosaics unearthed in villas.
