El Jem | Mosaic

Morning departure for El Jem. The Roman Coliseum in this city is one of the best-preserved in the world. It was constructed between 230 AD and 238 AD and is believed to, at one time, have hosted between 30,000 to 45,000 spectators. Take time exploring this enormous structure and do not forget to go down to the rooms where gladiators await their upcoming battle. There is a museum in the town that hosts a plethora of mosaics.
