This is a good place to start your exploration of the Carthage sites - especially if you are arriving by taxi, as it's located at the top of the hill.

Whilst there's a lot of modern concrete, you do get a good feel for what it would have been like in ancient times.

The "Villas Romaines" are just next door, but you need to walk a slightly circuitous route to get there (plenty of signposts).

It was built in the early second century , leaning on the slope of the hill.There are able to seat about 5000 spectators. The view from the top is beautiful. Don't miss it to reach to the top. The site have been viewed for musical entertainment nowadays. The opening hours is from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.

It’s amazing to see this good keeping of Roman amphitheater in the world. You can climb up the big steps to the highest and find the beautiful scenery everywhere. It’s said that there was a secret tunnel to the seaport for food transport. But I can’t find it.

This is interesting to imagine where the slaves and animals ect. would enter the theatre but there is no information to explain how the layout wotked.Maybe we should of had a guide to explain this. Allow about half an hour as it is not a huge thimg to look around. One disapointing element was behind the theatre there was alot of litter and it seems tbat some of the locals had walked in this way for free.

It is a great place to visit. Do not plan on spending much time there (45 minutes at most), but the time you do spend will be worth it. I recommend reading the story of Perpetua and Felicitas while standing in the ruins. They were two Christian martyrs with an inspirational story. Reading the story while standing there gave me chills.

As it seems to have been completely renovated with modern concrete, and you can't enter the underground spaces (such as for example in Merida, Spain), it's only worth a ten minute look-see.

This may be one of the largest theatres of the ancient world but it has been so modernized and converted into a concert venue that it has lost all the charm of antiquity. Fortunately we went here first before the Byrsa Hill, Carthage Museum and Antonine Baths, all included in the 10 dinar ticket. Things got better as the day went on!

We visited Tunis as part of a Cruise Holiday and it is certainly worth touring Tunis , however a word of caution is that you should get an organised tour as you are likely to be hassled a lot by Hawkers at every attraction , we visited Carthage and experienced the roman ruins which are worth seeing even in the blistering summer heat ,
Most people are encouraged to visit Sidi Bou Said a picturesque village where every building is painted in Blue , It is worth seeing but beware of the Market there it is set up specifically for tourists and the prices are high , barter with them and prices can tumble to 40% of original asking price , I bought an etching for €2 and my friend paid €11 for the same thing at a different seller.. however the constant hassle from the vendors is not worth the trip as they are very persistent and pushy and I would not venture there without an organised tour.
Having said that Tunis is worth seeing ( For a few Hours)

This is one of those places that was probably a major attraction under the old regime and clearly has been used for shows or concerts. Unfortunately, it hasn't been maintained very well (redone in parts with concrete, piles of garbage hidden in old holes and doorways, etc.), it's a pity as it could be a major stop on the Carthage touristic route. It's still worth a stopover but if you've already visited the Carthage Ruins or the Thermes d'Antonin, you may be underwhelmed.
