It was an amazing sight. I was very excited to finally get to see the ruins in person. It cost 10 Dinar a person and that allows you to visit 8 different spots around the area. Smart idea to have a car with because they are not within walking distance of each other. You should read up on what happened... More

Very little to see and no real historical context, if you did not know the history of the site this visit would not instruct you and if you do know the sites history you wont learn anything.

I made a quick visit here with a friend who knew the place well. The ruins are spread widely and are interspersed among modern homes. So it's essential to have a sense of what you are doing and where you are going beforehand, and preferably to have a guide who knows the ins and outs. Some of the spots would... More

I loved Carthage, but you must spend plenty of time there, to get your bearings and to understand the fascinating history. When you first arrive, there seems nothing but ruins, but once the guide had chatted to you, the whole picture of Carthage as it was comes to life.

I like history so it was quite fascinating to see the ruins. It was really hot and sunny when I went though, so kinda wanted to find shelter real soon. But it should be alright to stay an hour or less outside and then hide in the adjacent museum next door where it's nice and cool.
