“Worth a visit, if it's raining”
Review of Pupput Roman Site

Ranked #11 of 24 things to do in Hammamet
Attraction details
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Looks like a field from the outside looking in. Man in the building office let us pay for just 1 entry. A little random but not a bad visit if raining or for something to do. Taxi from the Phencia for 5 dinar, entry was 5 and walked back, in the rain

The site is right next to the Samira Club Hotel where we were staying. When we walked there the gates appeared to be locked, however we managed to attract the attention of a man inside, admission was 5 dinar and we had the place to ourselves, the gentleman who let us in showed us round the site and although he had little English and I only remember a bit of school French he managed to share quite a bit of information. The site may not be on the scale of El Jem or other Roman sites but seeing mosaics in situe and getting up close to them gave a sense of how magnificent the site must have been. There is also a Roman necropolis less than 10 minutes walk from the site.

Before I go any further, let me say that I didn't actually bother going in...read on if you want..

The Puppet Roman site is roughly midway between Hammamet and Yasmine Hammamet in what looks and feels like a deserted/abandoned hotel zone. You'd only get here by foot from a local hotel, or by taxi (5-10Dinar).

I walked here and almost missed it. There is a mesh fence "guarding" a field of long grass and an entrance booth..and that seemed to be it. No sense of a map, or a guided path or any information and no ruins protruding out of the ground... so I didn't bother.

Maybe it is a lost gem? Maybe it isn't, but either way I feel the Tourist Board and local hotels could do more to make it more appealing/engaging to the casual visitor.

It was just awful in the ghost town of Yasmine Hammamet. Definitely not worth going to. Considering some of the other sites in the country this was the pits!
