Summary

Algeria is still one of the least-visited countries in the world, but access to its ruinous Classical cities is now easier than it has been for some years. The sites are a palimpsest of Numidian, Roman and Byzantine remains, and include probably the best-preserved colonia anywhere in the Empire – Timgad.

Tour highlights:

  • Wander perfectly preserved streets at the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Roman Djémila and Timgad with its immaculate gridded plan
  • In Sétif gaze upon one of the most exquisite mosaics in all of the Roman world – the ‘Triumph of Dionysus’
  • Explore the Roman ‘City of Bridges’, Constantine, and the evocative ruins of Hippo Regius
  • Visit museums, which have been little-publicised, contain some astounding artefacts, displayed with great simplicity
