All reviews ancient city sidi bou taxi driver roman baths large area half day visit the main road worth a visit interested in roman history cost dinar julius caesar be fair google maps interesting trip on site local guide run down
Yes this site is extremely impressive to say the least but the details relating to the boards to explain what there is and where can do with improving to bring this up to European standard and explain the site better to visitors
We went to Carthage Hannibal station via the train and had planned to walk round the ruins, but a taxi driver explained that the site was large and if we wanted to see everything it was a lot of walking. He offered to drive us...More
If you are a history buff you probably know something about Carthage and about Hannibal. This is where it all began; an incredible "starting point" going back to a time BC.
I saw a review titled "Run Down". It goes back over 2000 years. It...More
The ruins of Carthage are very nice, but they also cover a whole lot territory. Do not attempt to walk all the sites. For approximately $30 U.S.D. we hired a driver for half a day to take us to both the Carthage highlights (about 4-5...More
Lots of feel to this place. The mosaics and pillars offer the most substantial remains to see, but the views out over the Med provide ample scope for the imagination. This was a very important place in western history, and the place still captures some...More
This site is great, but it isn't being looked after. People were there doing parkour/ free running over the ruins and there is discarded rubbish all over the site. It really needs them to actual bother maintaining it - I can't see how the entry...More
We decided to visit Carthage independently as we didn't really want to go on a coach tour. Getting there is quite easy (go to Carthage Hannibal metro station) but finding each of the sites is a bit more difficult, so we only ended up finding...More
Carthage was founded by Queen Dido nearly 3000 years ago. On land from the Berbers measured by finely cut oxhide it became one of the wealthiest cities of the ancient world. Central to the trading routes of the Phoenicians, this maritime thallassocracy engaged in the...More
I am into military history and such and I think if you are not, or do not know the history of Hannibal, Scipio and the likes you might not enjoy this visit- for it is just that- Ruins. To anyone else, this really is an...More
Great place to visit if you like history, with 5 different area's 20 minutes outside of Tunis, very easy to go there with a rental car. Combine it with a half day visit to Sidi Bou Said, the most beautiful village I have seen in...More

Not entirely sure, probably like most museums 8am-5pm-ish, though I was there at around 7:30am, and I know they have nighttime shows. One needs to purchase a ticket at one of the sites before going further, which gives access to all the many sites. I had a driver who knew where to go for the ticket and then showed me a great time doing as many site as I could fit into a morning, as I had to fly out at noon.
Your hotel will know for sure. And one can do a walking tour of all the sites, and there are random structures scattered around Carthage that one doesn't need the ticket for,

We stayed in Port el Kantoui and normally would research places to visit independently. However we decided to use a local tour operator and it was well worth doing (roads are not brilliant, public transport links a little sporadic (there is a train but the timetable didn't seem to reflect the times the trains actually ran!)). The advantage to sightseeing in this way was that we did get to see several important sights with the added advantage of an expert guide - the trip also took in a visit to Sidi Bou Said which is very picturesque and a brief visit to the capital thrown in. A long day but a great experience without any pressure. Enjoy
