Carthage was the CENTER OF THE WORLD...this was a place that produced Hannibal, the elephant army, the name of Africa, and was the meeting place of the Berbers, Phoenicians, Arabs, Romans, Carthaginians, Europeans and everyone else under the SUN. So. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND VISIT. First thing to know: there are various sites to this archaeological masterpiece--remember that this... More

I went to Carthage because I had heard beautiful things about it and let me tell you this is an incredible place. It's much bigger than I thought, it's free and it offers a magnificent view of the Mediterranean sea. I love the colors you get to see in the sky, the contrast with the ruins is an incredible view...

Great history where our ancestors travelled the Mediterranean to build a new city: Carthage. Similar to the ruins of our coastal cities of Lebanon

he huge complex that we can provide insight into what was once this famous city. Vast expanses of thermal baths, temples, public and private buildings covering the Mediterranean coast. This is only a pale shadow of the former city, but we still recreate the power.

Carthage is a place that is really worth visiting while being in Tunisia. It is easy accessible from any place in Tunis (no more than 5$ from any place in the town). There are here a few places that deserve particular attention - the Antonine Baths, the Carthage Museum and the St. Louis Cathedral. Each of these places needs at... More

Definitely worth a visit when in Tunis! However, please remember to bring your own map with the different archaelogical sites (e.g. Google Maps on phone), there is absolutely NO information or help from the museum staff. Also be careful, all museum staff will give you a guided tour without being asked and then demand money afterwards. If you decide to... More
