Overlooking the vast surrounding regions, it is not uncommon to see locals herding their sheep through the Roman ruins. Continue north to Bulla Regia where you will find some of the best-preserved underground Roman villas. You will visit a basicila and a theater with a large mosaic of a bear. St. Augustine of Hippo once visited Bulla Regia in 399 AD and stood in this arena to accuse the citizens of their lack of faith. After your visit, travel to El Kef for the night.
