Dougga is the highest point in a rolling valley, and provides one of the best views from on high in Tunisia. The defining feature of Dougga is its stage. Go with tradition and bring a favorite poem, song, dramatic piece, or other literary work to perform in front of a major seating complex that once accommodated 3,500 people . All of the structures were built between 166-188 AD. Behind the main theatre complex, tourists can wander through more than 20 baths and temples, which are in surprisingly good condition. Bring a camera and water. There is a small shop nearby to buy ice cream, souvenirs and refreshments.

The best time to come is during the Dougga Festival, which takes place in late July or August.
