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.

Looks like a field from the outside looking in. Man in the building office let us pay for just 1 entry. A little random but not a bad visit if raining or for something to do. Taxi from the Phencia for 5 dinar, entry was 5 and walked back, in the rain

The site is right next to the Samira Club Hotel where we were staying. When we walked there the gates appeared to be locked, however we managed to attract the attention of a man inside, admission was 5 dinar and we had the place to ourselves, the gentleman who let us in showed us round the site and although he...

Before I go any further, let me say that I didn't actually bother going in...read on if you want.. The Puppet Roman site is roughly midway between Hammamet and Yasmine Hammamet in what looks and feels like a deserted/abandoned hotel zone. You'd only get here by foot from a local hotel, or by taxi (5-10Dinar). I walked here and almost... More

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
