  • Ancient history with stunning seaside views, a must see and do. It was like 5$ each to get in definitely worth it. Wear running shoes you are walking for at least an hour or more, up and down steps....  more »
  • Entrance to this site is part of the ticket with 5 sites. I actually wanted to visit the Museum of carthage but it was closed for renovation... So I went to other 3 places and this was one of them...  more »

  • The scale of this site is gigantic and the engineering required really boggles the mind! Super impressive and that’s only observing the ruins that remain - cast yourself back and imagine what it must have been like at its prime! Don’t wander too far because armed security detail will whistle at you as the president’s coastal house is just next door
  • This historic place tells you how important but also elegant Carthago must have been during later Roman rule. The plot ends at the Mediterranean sea and it also includes remnants of Christian church and chapel as well as Punic graves and furnaces. Lots of palm trees so plenty of shadow on a hot October day. Plan up to an hour for the visit and consider taking a guide.
