Wow! They just let you climb all over the ruins like an adventure playground. Amazing experience which our kids loved.

“Interesting but more Visitor Information required.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We visited on Capital Sights Tour booked through Thompson. The price was £35 which included enterance fees and a mid day meal which I thought was very resonable.

Our guide was very knowledgable, but did not speak very clearly into the microphone some of the time which meant he was difficult to hear.

We drove through Carthage and stopped at the Antonine Roman Baths which are suituated in a beautiful location. The sight was interesting enough for an hours visit, however there could be more information boards in different areas of the vast building to help you understand what you are looking at.

The information that did exist was very faded by the sun and this needs to be replaced. Or you need to have a guide that will walk with you through the ruins and point out its features, that would help alot.

Was n't particularly impressed, most of Carthage has not been excavated as it has been built on many times, so there was not much to see.

I would not go again on this trip however I loved the Bardo in Tunis.

“Worth seeing -helps to have a guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Visited this as part of a cruise tour. Spent about 1 hour here. Really helped to have a knowledgeable guide. The site is definitely worth seeing and the highlight was being able to wander among the ruins and take some great photographs. Had to pay 1 euro at entrance to use camera although nobody monitors site. Also cafe and gift shop with toilets. Opportunity to sit outside the cafe and view the ruins. Stalls/traders at entrance/ exit.

“Great site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I've seen a lot of Roman ruines so far (El Djem, Palmyra in Syria, Baalbek in Lebanon, Rome, Pompei and loads more) but this is an excellent site. The baths are so huge! Also the other objects in the grounds are interesting, from the underground chapel to the christian church.
The guards from the adjacent presidential palace are a nice feature.

The combined entrance ticket for all attractions in Carthago is convenient and makes the .entrance fee very cheap overall. Unfortunately, sometimes three busloads of tourists are guided around at once, which makes it very crowded.

“Roman civic building at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Go and prepare to be amazed. This is Roman civic building and architecture at its very best. Better than anything you will see in Italy as are most of the other Tunsian sites.
