TABARKA
Roman ruins
Tabarka, Tunisia

There are a few areas of Roman excavations in Tabarka, nothing of much interest. Yet, it deserves mentioning, especially as you will pass at least the one downtown. If nothing else, it is a proof of Tabarka's long history, and points back to its emergence as an important port, shipping mainly marble from Chemtou but also lions for use in amphitheatres in Europe.
