This tour combines two of northern Africa’s historical jewels – Algeria and Tunisia, which share common borders and an intertwined history. Algeria is one of the most fascinating countries in North Africa, successively colonised by the
Numidians, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Umayyads, Abbasids, Fatimids, Almoravids, Almohads, Spaniards, Ottomans and, finally, the French colonial empire. On this tour we will visit Tipaza, with its ruins of a Phoenician trading post, Roman port and Byzantine churches. We will see the perfectly preserved Roman cities of Timgad and Djémila which provide insight into sophisticated urban living in the wealthiest of imperial Roman provinces. The Roman ‘City of Bridges’, Constantine, is encircled by the dramatic gorge of Wadi Rummel and proffers a dramatic history set in an equally dramatic landscape.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Discover the medieval desert town of Ghardaia
  2. Marvel at the UNESCO world heritage Roman sites of Tiddis, Lambaesis and Djemila and the Phoenician trading posts of Tipaza and Carthage
  3. Visit Berber oasis villages with their distinctive troglodyte houses
  4. El Djem’s huge amphitheatre, the largest in Northern Africa
  5. Explore the UNESCO fortified settlements of the M’Zab Valley in the Sahara
  6. Kairouan’s magnificent mosque

We will also encounter the fascinating ribats of Sousse and Monastir, built to defend Islamic Ifriqiyya from European incursions. From blue seas to sandy deserts: seaside cities and fishing villages, jagged hilltops and canyons, salt lakes, lush oases, and the world's greatest desert. These two countries offer lands of incredible hospitality and intriguing and extraordinary history in an area that is rarely visited by English speakers, making them classic Blue Dot destinations!
