What a fantastic site - truly breathtaking how well preserved and in part still functional this archeological highlight of Algeria is presented. Make sure to walk on the well preserved Via and listen to the sound of waves hitting the 2000 year old coastline villas ... strong recommendation!

Tipasa Ancient City is really breathtaking..However it's used as a picnic area by local residents =/ Ruins are vulnerable through uncontrolled visitor access. Lack of guide and information signs (all in French!) is another problem..To sum up, it's a beautiful place to see but needs to be protected..

A fantastic location for a town, Roman or otherwise, bordered by the Mediterranean to the north and mountains to the west, with buildings built right to the edge of the sea on stony outcrops. The site is relatively intact, if somewhat overgrown, but still fascinates with Roman ingenuity, engineering, architecture and artistry. However, it is a busy place, especially at... More

The Roman city was built on three small hills which overlooked the sea, are full of coffins, all of stone and covered with mosaics,Sometimes Tipasa is called "Tipasa in Mauretania", because there was another Tipasa in Roman Africa. Indeed another town called Tipasa was located in the Roman province of Numidia (the reason why it is referred to as "Tipasa... More

Tipasa is an easy day trip from Algiers and is worth the effort to see the relatively well preserved Roman ruins and the beautiful location. We visited on a Saturday and the site was very busy with local families and schoolchildren, but despite this it was still possible to find isolated parts. The site is extensive and spread out over...

There is so much history here. You can see where fighting used to take place and you're able to take as many pictures as you please. The walkway to the water was beautiful and when you get to the water, it's breathtaking! I just sat there and didn't want to go.
