  • The scale of this site is gigantic and the engineering required really boggles the mind! Super impressive and that’s only observing the ruins that remain - cast yourself back and imagine what it must have been like at its prime! Don’t wander too far because armed security detail will whistle at you as the president’s coastal house is just next door
  • This historic place tells you how important but also elegant Carthago must have been during later Roman rule. The plot ends at the Mediterranean sea and it also includes remnants of Christian church and chapel as well as Punic graves and furnaces. Lots of palm trees so plenty of shadow on a hot October day. Plan up to an hour for the visit and consider taking a guide.
  • Wonderful place. It would be perfect if some effort was invested in updating and fixing the different signs throughout the site
  • Of the sites in Carthage, the Antonine Baths are probably the best maintained and the most extensive. They have been excavated to the point that you get a good grasp of the level of the craftsmanship and the complexity of the Roman creation. They also agree not filled with the litter and detritus you find at most other sites in Carthage. Well worth visiting.
  • This place is truly incredible. Built by Hadrian before he got sent to Britannia. So cool.
