A little bit of culture and history on a package holiday.

We normally do culture/history type holidays but tried a change by going on an all inclusive beach holiday. By day three we needed to get out and explore. We wanted to go to El... read more

Had a great visit. Very interesting and had a guide who was helpful. Actually he was a technician who worked at the site but very knowledgeable. My wife and I love Roman archaeology so we enjoyed our hour spent walking around. Nice in situ mosaics with also some reproductions. Recommended.

Little of this late Roman/early Byzantine site has been excavated. Apart from a few title plaques (in French) there is no interpretation. This didn't particularly bother us as we understand the general layout of such sites. There were some mosaics of a moderate standard. An oldish guy tagged onto us and tried to explain some of the features (again in... More

We normally do culture/history type holidays but tried a change by going on an all inclusive beach holiday. By day three we needed to get out and explore. We wanted to go to El Jem or Carthage but due to recent attacks we had been advised against it. In these circumstances we headed for a trip to the little known... More

We didn't feel safe to have a look around on our own, and from what we could see it is not worthwhile taking the risk

This is a significant Roman site with plenty to see if you are interested, including several mosaics. The entrance fee is minimal, but that is as it should be, since the signage is almost non-existent and the paths are muddy. I seemed to be the only visitor (on a cold February morning) but maybe that's the charm of the place... More

We visited during October, which may explain the odd visit.. When we arrived we thought it must be closed, as there was nobody around and it seemed like a bit of a ghost town! We went to the entrance gate and found the guard asleep! When he woke up he was very friendly, and took us around the site. It... More

There are so many archaeological sites - some are majestic and amazing, some are so small and degraded that there's very little left worth seeing. Pupput is the latter - don't waste your time. Go to Carthage and El Jem instead if this is the kind of ancient ruins you seek.

The parking was fantastic. Literally outside the entrance, there was no-one else there. After paying for entrance, we walked into what looked like a post bombing car park. An expanse of dried up scrub, with a column or two in the distance. But then we began to wander round and to find that the houses and buildings were at just... More

The entrance was derelict and looked abandoned. The gates were still open but some questionable looking characters were outside so we didn't go in. There was no staff around despite there being signs to suggest that it was once heavily staffed. Land wasn't very cared for so felt like we wasted our journey unfortunately.
