“A good guide is a must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

You have a chance to see (not very much of it) what was never supposed to be seen, the foundations of these Roman baths. It's interesting only if there's someone to tell you what to look at, what's what and how it used to work - a good guide.

“You can see the three stages of development of a Roman city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012 via mobile

To be honest there isn't a massive amount to see, but what there is is impressive. There aren't a lot of signs explaining what you're looking at, so you either need a guide or your own knowledge.

When you enter you see the last stages of development of the city (Roman) and you see typical Roman ruins of places like scholariums and villas. As you walk through you will pass a grave yard full of urns used for human sacrifices and villa remains. You will eventually come to the ruins of the Roman baths. You can see that it was multiple stories high and that there are some mosaics (the majority have been moved to the museum though).

This is a nice place to visit and we recommend it, but you probably wouldn't spend more than a couple of hours there.

Also the stalls outside are the cheapest we experienced, but he you're not interested then just say " no thank you " and they leave you alone.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Romans really knew how to enjoy life! Even today after so many years, remains of Roman baths will give you a slightly idea how they lived in ancient times. Ruins are impressive and you can walk and climb around, or just sit in shade and imagine scenes of life at these times...

“Impressive ruins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

Beautiful ancient ruins of Roman Baths. Might be some tourists, but it is still possible to get good photos. One of the more impressive ruins found in Tunisia.
