El Djem is a good excursion for all ages, as even young explorers will enjoy learning about its exciting history as a Roman amphitheatre. The very brave can even venture down into the dungeons, where the slaves, animals and gladiators were kept waiting for their performance in front of a baying crowd of 35,000!
