Tunisia of antiquity left us many vestiges. The Carthaginian and Roman civilization offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in the past, to meet one of the most brilliant civilizations in history. Ancient cities such as Carthage and Dougga, testimonies of Punic civilization, the exploration of tombs that contained glass paste vases and amulets, terracotta masks designed to scare away evil spirits, have mostly been looted, but museums preciously keep what remains of gold and silver jewellery. This journey into the heart of history takes the visitor to sites that are mostly classified as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
