    Just over 90 kilometres to the south lies the resort town of Sousse. Sousse is home to one of the most popular beaches in Tunisia, Boujaffar Beach. This stretch of beautiful soft sand is much longer than many other beaches in Tunisia, so there is ample room for tourists and locals alike, which is good because it does draw in the crowds during the hot summer months.

Many people think of ancient Carthage when they think of Tunisia but overlook the period after Carthage fell and was re-established and governed by Rome. The Pupput ruins are not well kept like many of the Roman ruins in Europe but it is one of the few left in Africa. The Roman gift of engineering can still be seen in Pupput with the culverts and drainage channels that diverted water in and out of the settlement, creating a once healthy living environment. There are also tiled mosaics throughout the ruins but they are not regularly maintained. If you appreciate ancient artwork, it would be advised to see these beautiful mosaics while they are still intact.
