Constantine Algeria


Constantine has various interesting and beautiful bridges crossing the ravine that cuts through the city. This is the Sidi M'Cid Bridge at night. That's after we arrived in the city after visiting the Djémila ruins shown in a previous blog post. We also made a day trip to the Timgad ruins from here which is another post. Most of these city pictures are from the final day of a wonderful 3 day weekend trip.

Timgad Algeria Roman Ruins


Timgad is one of the best examples of roman city planning with a grid layout. These ruins are fairly big with the city originally designed for 15,000 people.

Djémila Algeria Roman Ruins

Djemila is a 4 hour drive to the east of Algiers. It's on the way to Constantine, which is a popular tourist destination here for the tourists who venture to Algeria.

Rome Italy


Rome is a 2 hour direct flight from Algiers, so it's a good place to get away for a week or a weekend. Here's a belated blog post full of photos from a couple of weeks ago.
