About this book

If you wonder: 'What have the Romans ever done for us?' you should perhaps visit Volubilis, the best-preserved Roman site in present-day Morocco, or the spectacular amphitheatre at El Jem, built by the wealthy proconsul Gordion who later committed suicide within his own great monument. North Africa: The Roman Coast is the first guide dedicated to the Roman heritage sites of modern-day Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, and it brings the old stones to life with stories both triumphant and tragic of the characters that lived among them. It additionally gives details of nearby attractions of the present day, such as the Medina and Kasbah at Rabat in Morocco and the charming seaside villages of Sidi Bou Said and Mahdia in Tunisia, to create a guide that appeals to ruin-seekers and beach-lovers alike.
