Kick off in the walled city of Kairouan. Visit Africa's second-oldest mosque and explore the crumbling Medina quarter. The interior of the Great Mosque is dazzling. The ornate tiles, intricate carpets and pine-shaped chandeliers are beguiling and even the drains are beautifully decorated. Next, marvel at the elaborate tiles and stucco of the Sidi Sahbi Mausoleum then wander the Medina's meandering alleys of whitewashed houses with faded blue and green doors and window frames.

There's a stop for lunch at midday before visiting El Jem Colosseum, the third-largest built by the Romans. During its heyday, up to 35,000 spectators would pack its steep stands to watch gladiatorial fights and chariot races.
