Here you get one ticket to see all the ruins around Carthage. Since the location is on top of the Byrsa Hill, you have a perfect overview of lower Tunis and the surrounding places as well.

Small museum, surrounded by some of the ruins. Some, but not all, descriptions in English. Much more in French. As this is included in the entry fee to all the Carthage ruins, worth a visit. Clean bathrooms in the same building.
