The Carthage Site were just about dilapidated structures from ancient times. Located within 10 miles of Tunis, they are convenient to see if in Tunis/Tunisia for a day or two. The sites have guides that come up to you then explain what the site is about. Beware these touts will expect a certain amount of Dinars (5 or more) in... More

It was built in the early second century , leaning on the slope of the hill.There are able to seat about 5000 spectators. The view from the top is beautiful. Don't miss it to reach to the top. The site have been viewed for musical entertainment nowadays. The opening hours is from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.

You'll need a map or you better have some knowledge of Arabic or French, because otherwise it is quite complicated to find the place. The roman theatre is not well preserved, you'll find plenty of vegetation around the terraces and, as it is still in use, some miscellanea related to performing, such as lights, wires and metallic structures, which make...

Beautiful Roman theatre, remarkably well reserved and very clean. Easy to get to. Not crowded at all.

How many things we build today are likely to be in use in 2,000 years? That's one of the interesting things about this amphitheater. Not only did they get the construction and engineering right 2,000 years ago well enough for it to survive, but they also apparently understood acoustics.

I first visited the Roman Theatre at Carthage back in 1971 and had the most wonderful memories of a wonderful piece of Roman antiquity. Unfortunately, my re-visit in 2014 was a massive disappointment. The site seems to have been allowed to become quite dilapidated in the intervening years. That's not to say that it isn't worth seeing, but the Tunisian... More

We visited Tunis as part of a Cruise Holiday and it is certainly worth touring Tunis , however a word of caution is that you should get an organised tour as you are likely to be hassled a lot by Hawkers at every attraction , we visited Carthage and experienced the roman ruins which are worth seeing even in the...

This is an original Roman amphitheater that is still used today for many performances. There has been a little work on it to modify with electricity and a more modern stage but the original stone wall is still on the stage and is used as part of the stage. All of the seats and steps are original Roman stones. Very... More
