Nicknamed the City of Bridges, Constantine, whose walkways and suspended bridges are worth a detour, is one of oldest cities in the world. Surrounded by the Rhumel gorges, the ancient capital of Numidia, located in eastern Algeria is an inexpensive and vibrant destination. However, the city, steeped in Arab and Andalusian culture, also promises an unforgettable stay spent exploring.
