I was surprised by its size. I thought it is bigger than that. But its historical value is much important.

I was surprised to see that the place was not well kept. During my visit, everything reminded me of the festival held in this place as it seems to be the only focus and interest. Moreover the place closes by five pm and we could easily get in by tipping the guard. Weird experience, I've definitely seen better Roman theaters... More

I think the coolest thing about the Roman Theater is that it's STILL BEING USED TODAY for concerts--each summer there's a festival that brings big acts from all over the world. Recently, Akon and Lauryn Hill performed there! The actual theater itself isn't REMARKABLE, but it's super cool that it's still a working theater today!

A must see for anyone interested in roman ruins. It's in very good condition and definitely worth a visit . It will surprise you how well the sound travels from the stage to the nose bleeds

I was impressed by the size of this place. But very soon I realized that most of this place it is only a concrete reconstruction. I do not consider it as place worth visiting.

The Carthage Site were just about dilapidated structures from ancient times. Located within 10 miles of Tunis, they are convenient to see if in Tunis/Tunisia for a day or two. The sites have guides that come up to you then explain what the site is about. Beware these touts will expect a certain amount of Dinars (5 or more) in... More
