I was impressed by this, it’s the leftovers of the man-made military port of Carthage. It’s nice to walk around and on the island in the middle there is a ‘museum’ included in the 12 TD Carthage ticket but there is almost nothing there. Because of this I could see why some visitors might be disappointed, but it depends on what your interests are, I thought it was good and enjoyed it.

Don't be fooled by this maritime marvel as there is more to the Punic Ports than the casual observer can see. It was a man made naval base where up to 220 triremes at a time could berth. Not visible to the outside sea , it is the perfect hiding place. You would have to pass the commercial boating first and then through the thin causeway and into the base. Built well over 2000 years ago, it is a true marvel.

This is the harbour of Carthage and there is a small shed in the corner with a mock up how it looked in Punic and Roman times. Do walk around to see the remnants of Carthage ship dry dock.

Nothing spectacular to see here. A round peninsula surrounded by water. Some remains of columns and stone walls, some tiny boats anchored here and there. No tourist except me (it was afternoon). In a maximum of 20 minutes you saw everything. Free access.

Magnificent unspoilt area full of charm. Individual small fishing boats with fishermen mending their nets. Calm peaceful and warm. Surrounded by roman remains

The only thing you see here is pools of water on either side of the bridge - what remains of the harbor. You would not know what it was, unless you were told. Bit disappointing really, although we did not go into the museum, which I only saw as we were leaving

Difficult to envisage the glory of Carthage from the remnants of the Commercial and Naval harbours. Just like an English village pond. No explanations visible on the site.

I didn't get to the museum, just the port area, where I could 'see' the ancient trading vessels tied up, unloading cargo etc. Magnificent location, again.

Interesting to see nice homes built around the punic port (some ruins too). We were on a bus tour, and we were b dung charged 1 euro to take photos. Take dollar bills (not coins).

The views were mostly residential. Very expensive real estate. The port was small, but expected of 2,000+ years ago. There's a small park with ruins.

Before the punic port, stop by the graveyard of the firstborn babies who were sacrificed (cut up and burned) to please the gods.
