Breath taking! We loved our trip back in time to the Roman city of Timgad which is so vast and well preserved.

We spent a good couple of hours walking through these ruins, from the amphitheatre at the back all the way down to the public baths. Although bare, these ruins can still evoke a time gone by. And if you have a chance, go to see...More

I could not have been more impressed. The ruins seem to go on for miles. The pictures don't do it justice but we still took them every time we stopped. It would've been a great place to bring the kids too.

It's not Pompei, a city suddenly "frozen" (sorry for the bad joke) in history, but it's very well preserved since nothing had ever been built on the site after its inhabitants left. Many stones are missing, probably used to build the Byzantine fortress nearby or...More

Words can hardly describe thrill of seeing these ruins for the first time. The Arch of Trajan dominates the site. The ruins are well preserved and perfectly safe for foreign visitors. During the civil war the area was very dangerous but now is very peaceful....More

I cannot believe we had never heard of this place before going to Algeria. Absolutely a jewel!! There are no tourists (as for the rest of Algeria) which is unbelievable. Absolutely breathtaking!! Vast and well preserved, In comparison, Pompeii is tiny!

Timgad is a long drive from anywhere, but well worth the trip. Timgad is a complete city. From the dolphin toilets to the wheel ruts under the Triumph Arch this site is unique. I have been to Roman Ruins in every modern country where Rome...More

Hi, The closest airport is in Batna (20 km from Timgad). Air Algerie flies there from Algiers and from several cities in France. Constantine (a 2 1/2 hr drive from Timgad) should offer more flights. Batna has a few hotels... More

Dear Samir, I recommend you stay speechless since you clearly do not understand what I have said and asked. And, what you said is unlikely to be helpful to anyone, anywhere. I liked Muscat a lot, however.
