  • The Roman villas form the quarter containing the largest number of vestiges of patrician houses discovered in Carthage. There are a lot of ruins but the best-conserved house of the site known as the “villa of the aviary”, which was restored provides a good idea of the beauty of the residences built in this Roman city. As we walked down through the paved street we could enjoy the stunning view over the bay of Tunis. Visit my Instagram (kelledstyle) and my blog for more pictures and info ;-)
