El Jem is has one of the best preserved Roman amfitheaters in the world. Just a 5 minute walk from the center of town, you see the old Stadium. The Romans built it to thank the Tunisians for being one of their most important olive producing regions.

The theater is a copy of the Colloseum in Rome and just as impressive. In its glory days 35,000 spectators would watch the shows here. Parts of the theater have been restored to their former glory.

When you stand in the middle of the stadium it is easy to feel like a gladiator. You get visions of lions coming at you... hello
