About the tour

Join us for a tale of two halves in Carthage as Mohamed, your guide, teaches you about the Roman and Carthaginian empires. Learn about the harbours that were instrumental for the Roman military and mercantile trade, as well as the Tophet Tombs, the supposed site where Carthaginian families sacrificed their first male child. A tour for history and archaeology enthusiasts alike, and certainly not one to be missed!

An interesting overview of the history of Carthage showing both the stones over urns and the harbour. I got a good impression of how hot and dry it was. I felt that I needed to go and read up a bit more on Phoenicians etc.
