Roman ruins of Djemila

• Today we venture to Djémila: the finest Roman ruins in North Africa—perhaps the world. These are the most well-preserved Roman ruins built in a mountainous environment.

• Spend a few hours here taking in the mountain scenery, and getting up close and personal with the ruins. There are almost no other tourists around!

• After the ruins, we’ll drive to Constantine for dinner and to stay overnight.

• Today we fly south to Bechar. Then transfer to Taghit, an oasis surrounded by the Sahara Desert.

• In the afternoon, we can take a stroll through the bustling market of Taghit, or get a tan poolside at the hotel.
