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

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
