The Roman ruins of Dougga are on the UNESCO World Heritage List for a reason: this is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding examples of Roman architecture worldwide. Although Dougga is somewhat off the beaten path, and perhaps nowadays somewhat a somewhat "adventurous" proposition (it's a few miles from the Algerian border and in the restive El Kef Governorate), it's not considered a risky place, and experiencing the majesty of this hillside Roman city makes it well worth the travel distance. You an walk around this site for hours, and the pathways are well-marked, although not appropriate for people with difficulty walking. The place can get extremely hot and/or extremely windy depending on the time of the year, so prepare accordingly. Another bonus, since this is somewhat off the beaten path, tourists are scarce (which also means a relative lack of facilities), but it is entirely manageable. This might be one of the most inspiring places in the entire region - it should not be missed!
