Explore the impressive ruins of the El Jem Amphitheatre (UNESCO World Heritage site), the largest colosseum in North Africa and second largest in the Roman world. The massive theatre, which is said to have been able to hold up to 35,000 spectators, was built entirely of stone blocks with no foundations, and was modelled on the Colosseum of Rome. The facade comprises three levels of arcades and inside most of the supporting infrastructure for the tiered seating remains intact. The underground passages, arena and podium are exceptionally well-preserved.
