For those interested in Carthage and the Phoenicians, a visit to Kerkouane is a must. Uniquely, this town was not built over after it was taken by the Romans. This means that many aspects of everyday life in a small Punic town can still be seen here. The layout of villas can be seen as can the overall layout of a typical Punic town, with curved streets rather than the straight ones later preferred by the Romans. The location directly by the sea also makes the ruins quite picturesque. If you are looking for monumental building, this is not the site for you, but if the small details of everyday life fascinate you, then you should definitely go.
