Mostly dispiriting. See the Ports, Byrsa Hill, Antonine Baths. You've got a wide choice of TGM stations to hop between. The railway is pleasant. Maybe hop off at La Goulette, get a decent non-Bou Said price meal. Sort of place one ought to make an effort to see while here. Best make it a meagre effort in this stretched out... More

Definitely a must see if you are in Tunis. Very few tourists in Tunisia so it feels like you have the place to yourself. The ruins are well preserved and very iterating to see how people lived hundreds of years ago.

The archeological site is not very impressive, so I would recommand it only to history lovers.... We were there in the early afternoon so it was quite hot and not very good light for taking photographs...

It was a good visit, but this archaeological site is extremely overrated comparing to many other Archaeological sites in Tunisia.

If our guide spoke better Russian I would probably be excited by the Carthage's history and legends, but apart from that these are very unimpressive ruins and a museum. The ruins in Jordan, for example, are much more spectacular. Whilst taking 1 dinar for the permission to take photo the guards somehow missed out the fact that our guide climbed... More

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
