You have to go this is amazing. So cheap - just buy the one ticket that lets you in to all the sights. Fantastic.

Although the ruins themselves are quite well preserved, they could benefit from more professional curators and museum architects. Written explanations are basic, guides uneven.

History lies in tunisia but it is sad to see that the state or the tunisians do not really care about it. Carthaginian ruins are composed of seven different places , all of them are worth to see. I wish the ruins could have been preserved better and be displayed with the locals' enthusiasm.

The coastal ruins of Carthage (Punic Docks) are poorly preserved and desperately poorly presented. You enter past a couple of men smoking by what appears to be a payment kiosk, but I was not asked for any payment. The site is fenced off with rusty iron railings, and the information is a few faded boards by the remains of footings of buildings etc. in Arabic, French & German. Some of the boards were so faded you can't read them.
Not worth a visit, and I was expecting to see so much more of one the world's first superpowers. There is nothing to tempt you to stay in Carthage. Very few restaurants / cafe's (and the ones there are seemed to cater purely for locals and not for tourists), no nice Mediterrenean Promenades and nothing really to do. The nearby town of La Marsa has much more for the tourist but no historical artifacts.

Very interesting place. Lots of relics to see and not too expensive although we had to pay an extra dinar just to take photos of the ruins etc. Good view from there.
