It was good, but there was no information there and as it is still used for performances today, it wasn’t clear how much of it is a modern reconstruction (my sense is most of it is reconstructed to look like it used to)

One of the must-see sites in Carthage. The amphitheater is well-preserved and explains the Carthagians history of prosperity that can be unrivaled by the Romans. You can buy a ticket for 12D that will let you also give you access to all the other sites in the area.

If you stand on the left end at the top of the amphitheater (toward the sea), you will get a rewarding view.

Having read the history of carthage, I was disappointed that there was not much original left ( recognizing that the Vandals basically destroyed it). Worth a visit, but manage your expectations -- as this is not El Djem

A magnificent ancient Roman Theatre and Odeon in Carthage area of Tunis. I visited as part of my one day trip. My guide explained to me the historical significance of this amazing structure. Built in second century BC, located in serenic surroundings, this open air Theatre can accommodate more than 5000 spectators. Presently cultural and musical programs are held at this place. There is admission ticket to enter the premises.

you can skip it in case you don't have time. The entrance ticket is included with the other sites.
Few nice pictures when it's sunny.

We visited both the Amphitheatre and the Antonine baths Roman ruins in Carthage. (32 DT for 3 people - £8.82) If you can appreciate Roman architecture and construction together with the imagination to visualise former use, these are magical places to visit.
On first impression, the amphitheater is understated and I felt a little ‘underwhelmed’ on my approach. The walk way in has the potential to be much more dramatic and interesting but the ‘quietness’ of it is quite charming at the same time. It’s fantastic the amphitheater is still in use today and stages things like Carthage’s annual summer festival. Because of this, there is a modern style refreshment/bar area close to the actual entrance to it which only opens for events. (I think I’d be tempted to remove this in favour of erecting ‘pop up refreshment areas’ when needed to keep the area as pure as possible to its original form) The Amphitheater itself is impressive although has been predominantly rebuilt in concrete with the addition of the modern raised stage area. However, some of the steps/seating has been preserved so I couldn’t help but sit and imagine the Gladiators of old fighting for their lives only a few yards away from me. The Antonine Baths was a wonderful sight left untouched since archeologists unearthed it after 1945. Only the basement remains and there are drawings depicting what the baths would have looked like originally. From the enormous basement, you can get a good idea of the vast structure it once hid beneath. It’s a breathtaking site and whilst walking through the warren of tunnels and chambers, you can hear the sea crashing along the shore line and understand how its power was harnessed for the baths. There were a few other visitors on our trip but because the site is so big, felt very much on our own most of the time. There is an option to pay a local guide to take you through the site if preferred but we chose to walk through the site with the pamphlet given when we bought our tickets.

This seems to be the most intact of the sites of Carthage. We enjoyed being the only visitors clambering around the amphitheatre.

It’s amazing to see this good keeping of Roman amphitheater in the world. You can climb up the big steps to the highest and find the beautiful scenery everywhere. It’s said that there was a secret tunnel to the seaport for food transport. But I can’t find it.

Ugly and fake. I think it's made for 95% out of modern concrete. Not authentic at all. Wast of time.

This is interesting to imagine where the slaves and animals ect. would enter the theatre but there is no information to explain how the layout wotked.Maybe we should of had a guide to explain this. Allow about half an hour as it is not a huge thimg to look around. One disapointing element was behind the theatre there was alot of litter and it seems tbat some of the locals had walked in this way for free.
