Interesting museum full of beautiful roman mosaics and other artefacts. This is a place not to miss out if you are interested in not only Roman history but the history of the Mediterranean.

Roman era mosaics, including the world's largest, are everywhere. They are in an excellent condition. The high point, however, are the relics of the Carthegian civilization dating to seventh century BC. Check out the Alabaster base.

A gem of a museum and a real treat to visit! The mosaics are something to behold, the detail and scale is amazing, we've never seen mosaics like these and probably never will again. A must-see if visiting the city!
