Remarkable Roman site of a once prosperous town with the capitol, theater and a Punic mausoleum.

It's a must see, once in a life time. The place is historical (167-169), imagine that. You can learn in silence about Roman Empire. Very inspiring place.

This Roman Ruin is an incredible heritage site in Tunisia. It's just amazing to see the preservation. It's about roughly 110 km from Tunis. The site is an excellent example of Roman/Byzantium life and governance. A wonderful experience. 5/5
