Carthage was one of the great cities of the ancient world and was added to the World Heritage List in 1981. The hill of Bysra, where in the 8th century Princess Elissa-Dido founded the city, carries a wealth of history. In 202 BC Carthage fell to the Romans after the second hard fought Punic War against Hannibal.

Little remains of Phoenician Carthage, however there are still many Roman sites to be seen including baths, villas and an amphitheatre which houses the Carthage International Summer Festival
