All reviews ancient city sidi bou roman empire large area half day visit the main road worth a visit roman villas every corner certain parts keep in mind interested in roman history be fair follow the signs interesting trip extra dinar on site
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
We hired a car and driver to take us to see some of these wonderful roman remains.It is fascinating that there are still buildings and lifestyle items to be viewed after such a long time.Guide books are needed prior to any visit to fully appreciate...More
Carthage is a treasure. You justvwalk around and you almost stumble into spectaclar ruins from the Punic amd Roman eras.
Use a seasoned guide, and walk from site to site through a full day. That is what we did.
You will not regret it
This place is in really good condition considering it is ruins. The only thing it needs is more signage.
What was a little concerning was we saw some workmen trying to remove some plants that had grown in gaps on the site. They were hitting...More
I guess this is the best historic Roman site to visit in the whole of Carthage as it is a large area to walk over. Best if you had a guide. I didn't have any so had to rely on Google. Entrance is TND10 which...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
