Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 guides travellers around the Roman heritage sites of modern-day Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, and brings to life the stories behind the archaeological remains. It additionally gives details of nearby attractions of the present day, including beaches, museums, excursions and adventure tours.

 

Synopsis:

This first guidebook dedicated to the Roman Coast of North Africa—Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya—brings the ruins to life with colorful stories of the characters that lived and died within their walls. It also covers contemporary attractions, appealing to both ruin-seeker and beach-lover alike.
