EL JEM/THYSDRUS
Inside the colonnades
El Jem, Tunisia

Walking the colonnade of the amphitheatre is really impressive, and you will see more travellers than yourself leaning their heads backwards while walking around it all.
Much of it cannot have served any practical purpose, and the construction was clearly intended to impress its visitors.
