For me the Punic sites in Carthage were far more interesting than the Roman ones. Especially as the Roman sites often are heavily RECONSTRUCTED - just like the Villas. You get nice picture of life lived here though. But I did not get any kicks from this place.

I hired one of the "expert tour guides" and had an excellent insight into the ruins. Walking shoes are a must as some places require flat shoes. I would recommend this but only if you have time to see all of the nooks and cranny's. It was great to see pieces of old pottery unearthed by the elements. These would... More

After the Roman Baths I can definitely recommend this one. The complex is large, and going up the hill you can really sense why Romans would have build a villa here. The view is stunning, and part of an old villa has been restored. There are mosaics and traces of mosaics to be seen everywhere. It really is a wonderful... More

Ruins need to be preserved better , however it is still worth to see those ruins. Locals and the state need to respect the history more

It is worth paying a little money to local guides camped out in the Villa ruins as they are very knowledgeable. Ben Ali's brother-in-laws former home is on the edge of the Villas. it too is a ruin. A bit of history in the telling.

We went late in the day so didn't have much time, but it was beautiful. There's a lot of mosaics hidden away and it was fun to wander all around the site, imagining how it looked hundreds of years ago. Make sure you leave enough time!
