Went on the Thomson's "Tale of three cities" day trip from Port El Kantaoui to Kairouan, El Djem and Monastir of which undoubtably El Djem was the star attraction. It's sheer size and grandeur takes you back to days of gladiators. You have to climb some steps to gain the full view of this amphitheatre and it's well worth it. However anyone with a walking difficulty would not be advised to try it as some steps are "well worn". Also descend the steps into an underground world as you enter the tunnels where the animals and gladiators were kept. If can't go to Rome then this is a great substitute!
