From the capital, Tunis, you can take those south bound trains destinated to Sousse or Sfax, and get off at Hammamet. Change to an east bound train to Nabeul. At Nabeul, ask a taxi driving you to the louage hub, which is just beside the...More

Sometimes less is more and this is one of those instances: as the only surviving purely Punic site in the world that was not rebuilt by the Romans, it is definitely worth a visit. Smaller than some of the other sites, most of the walls...More

It was raining cats, dogs and blowing sideways at that, so I went through these ruins with a destroyed umbrella and enjoyed myself immensely. The site has some unusual bits, so it is well worth stopping for a look-see even if you get soaked by...More

The title applies to Carthage more than this wee murex arc on Cap Bon. Were those Phoenicians really woaded up in Tyrian Purple after falling asleep in the bath? After Antonine Baths at Carthage (one of the few imagination-fuelling things left standing) with typical Roman...More

After a disappointing visit to Carthage where nearly every ruin is Roman or Byzantine, I really wanted to visit a Punic site. Kerkouane fit that bill nicely. Not too very far from Tunis, Kerkouane is worth the visit if you have an interest in Punic...More
