1 Day Culture tour itinerary for Carthage & Tunis: Rediscover The Carthaginian Civilization
Explore the ancient city of Roman Carthage, the capital city of the Carthaginian civilization. Witness the Antonine Roman Baths, clifftop village called Sidi Bou Said, Bardo Museum with its Roman mosaics, amphitheatre, sacrificial site, and other relics.
Step back through the millennia at the ancient ruins of Carthage. Founded by the Phoenicians in 814 BC, this once mighty city was home to Hannibal. But its real heyday came under the Romans when it was the jewel in the crown of their Empire, and its crumbled monuments will leave you wide-eyed.
See the immense Antonine Roman Baths perched above the Med, the amphitheatre and haunting sacrificial site of Tophet, as well as numerous other relics.
Then it is on to Sidi Bou Said, a beautiful clifftop village. All radiant whites houses, blue shutters and cobbled streets, this picturebook place commands heart-stopping views over Tunis bay.
After lunch, you will visit Tunis’ famous Bardo Museum. Here, your Tunisian guide will take you around its world-leading collection of Roman mosaics - astonishing artworks dug up from Roman villas found in the region.
Afterwards, if there is free time, admire the museum’s other displays, before heading back to your resort.
