This looks like it could be a fantastic place to visit. The views from here are nice and we enjoyed it. We were a little disappointed that the signs are only in French and Arabic so we could not tell what we were looking at - this made it feel like a wasted trip as we could not appreciate the... More

Close to Djerba Marina, you can get a wonderful sightseeing over Mediterranean Sea and a nice time by visiting one of the oldest monuments of Djerba. Since you well be close to the marina I also recommend that you take a trip on a pirate boat or that you visit Houmt Souk's market.

Let's just say that if you skip this place on your trip is not at all a big loss.. We had some problems with a few locals, the area around Fort Ghazi not safe enough for tourists

My boyfriend really enjoyed this and got some great photos of the views from the top of the fort. A lot of things to look at like the marble ruins statues when you walk through the door. Only problem is the writing on the pictures explaining what happened is not in english.

I went here at the hottest part of the day when the temperature was 40c and appreciated the coolness if the interior. Lots if step to climb but fairly well preserved.

Photogenic fort, nice views. Good if you have small boys with you as they love all the things to climb on.

We visited here mainly because the museum we wanted to see was closed on a Friday (beware, Friday not the usual Monday seems to be the day cultural institutions close on Djerba.) We very much enjoyed walking the walls, looking out to the water and exploring the fort. I think it's a place children can get into. My one suggestion... More

I would read up on this place before going or have information to hand. Interesting history and great to be able to wander around the ruins freely.

We stopped off here for about 40 minutes as part of an organised excursion and thought it was quite nice. Our guide told us a little about it before we got there and just as well as I don't remember seeing that much by way of explanation when we were there. The ruins were interesting and it was nice to... More
