I was here in the last days of 2010, and I was totally ignorant of the Revolution that was going on in Tunisia at the time. I reached this fantastic spot which is all about History by train from the centre of Tunis. After a short walk, I was in the ruins, and my eyes could see exactly the same... More

Make sure you take a hat and water if its hot. Managed to get there using the metro. Not a great deal to see so it can be done in a few hours.

There are almost no ruins on the site. Actually there are but they are all ruined. I was very disappointed by what I saw there although I knew that there aren't much of ruins there. However, the museum on site has a nice collection of roman murals and various artifacts.

We went as a excursion from the hotel. What a great piece of history. We were the only ones there, and there was a local guide, who showed us everything, and explained it all in detail. So we could paint a picture of the place as it would have been when in use.

The Roman baths are all that remain, and they are quite interesting. Either hire a guide or have a guidebook with you to get more out of the visit.

I was staying in Sousse and took a day out to visit Ancient Carthage. I like to travel independently if I can possibly do so. I left Gare de Sousse (sousse train station) for the 2 hour train journey to Tunis (be careful as there are 2 train stations in Sousse) - cost approx £8.00 1st class return. Get off... More

You absolutely must go here if you go to Tunis, its what Tunis' history is all about. I was amazed how close it is to the city, just a 15 minute drive. I would recommend you get an approved taxi from your hotel to take you here and on to other sites for the day. Mine stayed with us all... More

Awesome Ruins- Really showcases the history and culture that Tunisia has to offer. Go at a time when the crowds are small for a premium viewing experience
