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.
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.
