Best part of the ruins at Carthage

The ancient baths were the most impressive of the ruins. They weren't crowded on a Saturday afternoon in April. Highly recommend.

While there is not a great deal to see, it has to be admitted, and other than through the lens of an archaeologist one needs a vivid imagination, the Thermes Antonin site is actually quite remarkable on several counts. Firstly for its upkeep; the Tunisian government is not wealthy, and all too often this translated into weeds and a complete... More

Visited the famous ruins of the ancient city of Carthage which was once the third largest city in the Roman Empire. There is not a lot left to see of this once magnificent city but what does remain is the very interesting ruins of the baths and gymnasium buildings which were able to accommodate 10,000 people at a time. The... More

Would prefer to see baths more intact. Romans built over Carthage burial graves. Baths were large, but one had to use imagination due to the extent of the ruins. Don't compare with Bath, England.... you will be disappointed. However it faces the Mediterranean.

Starting your journey sometimes ends unexpectedly. I’ve heard “as anyone else” about Carthage and its historical monuments. Accordingly Carthage was one of our first destinations when we’ve been in Tunisia last summer. I should admit that what I have seen there- far exceeded my expectations. The huge area covered with historical monuments over several kilometers made this place an open... More

These ruins are set overlooking the sea. They are easily accessible and you can spend hours looking at the areas that have been excavated. There has been some looting so all of the areas are not intact, but there is a scale model on the grounds to show what these baths were like at the time they were built.

Carthage was the bane of Rome. When eventually sacked, it was cruelly burnt & salted. Then Africa became a bit bigger to defend against. Settle New Carthage. These Public Baths show they were bubbling where it matters. Most other parts, including Byrsa Hill & The Ports are hum-ho for casual meanderings. (The Punic Tophet is more interesting. They did sacrifice... More

These ruins are also well preserved and you can get a feel for the social aspect of the Roman baths had for Roman men. It is extremely well thought out and engineered for its time. Well worth visiting.

This is a must do attraction on the combined ten dinar ticket. Nice toilets a small shop which sells a great guide book. You can get a personal local guide quite cheaply but we chose not too. The bottom area near the sea has the wow factor!! The exit has some nice shops and the one opposite has good quality... More

was nice to wonder around, you can make good pictures, but it all depends on the guide. If he tell you anything on where is what, then you'll be fine, otherwise it's just a pile of picturesque stones.
