It was just awful in the ghost town of Yasmine Hammamet. Definitely not worth going to. Considering some of the other sites in the country this was the pits!

The wasted opportunity is referring to the Tourist Board not us! The site is easily accessible from both Hammamet and Yasmine Hammamet. It is well worth the effort if you like relatively unexcavated sites. It looks as though someone thought it was a good idea to start work but never got round to finishing it. This is a large site...

Pupput is an exceptional settlement existed in Hammamet in the northern Tunisia , Historical sources mention the existence of a Capitol, a theatre and amphitheatre, of which no traces exist today. Remains include aqueducts parts, cisterns, some edifices with mosaics, and baths which gave the name to the nearby Hammamet

My wife and I had a walk from the Phenicia hotel down the road to the Roman site (about 30 minutes) and it seemed shut. On closer inspection we saw that there was an open gate next to the empty entrance kiosk and after reading a sign about entrance - normally 5 dinar - we saw that it said on... More

I guess we all expect a ruins to be pretty run down but this is in dire need of some attention! It costs 5dn to enter and is barely worth it. I guess perhaps if more went it would be a little better kept, but maybe if it was a little better kept more people would go? The ruins were... More

This is a very impressive site and needs to be treated with far more love and care, it is literally disintegrating! The floor mosaics are falling apart and weeds, trees and grasses are growing through the ruins breaking things up. Its such a shame.

We enjoyed visiting this site, but were disappointed to find that no one in the hotel, taxi drivers, etc, had any knowledge of it. Eventually while in a taxi we saw signs to it. The ruins were interesting and the mosaics still in place. We did not see any stray dogs, although there were a few cats. There was litter... More

This was a great little trip in walking distance of our hotel,well worth a visit. We had a lovely little man walk us around and tell us some info on the ruins. He was also more than happy to take photos for us .

Whilst in Hammamet decided to visit ruins of Puppet.Paid 5 dinars to disinterested "guard" at site office.Very run down,with no care to protect ruins what so ever.Litter strewn.wild dogs,and stray cats.No other tourists about on my visit.Site needs protecting by International archeological organisation,before the place is turned into another rubble-filled building site.
