Dougga is a must-see for ruins fanatics like me. The ruins are in a excellent state of preservation. In particular, the theatre and the Temple of Jupiter in the forum are quite exquisite. Sitting on the seating in the theatre you can really imagine what it must have been like. There are also numerous smaller details preserved - such as a Roman 10-seater toilet. The surrounding countryside is very scenic, which truly makes these ruins a photographer's delight. if you go in winter, there will be no crowds ( especially at the moment with tourism down in Tunisia). I was able to sit all by myself in the theatre for a while. Allow a good while to visit this site. I was there for around three hours just absorbing the wonderful atmosphere, but could easily have stayed longer.Don't listen to the rubbish about Tunisia not being safe, by the way.
