The remnants of ancient Carthage – fabled wealthy seafaring city of the Phoenicians – lie scattered across the Bay of Tunis. The evocative tumbled columns and piles of marble rubble are bordered by a panorama of the Mediterranean Sea, which was so fundamental to the city’s prosperity. Completely destroyed in the third punic war in 146 BC, the surviving ruins pale in comparison to some of North Africa’s. Carthage is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Located about 22 km of Tunis.
