About the tour

Join us on an unforgettable visit to the ancient Roman city of Carthage where we will explore the Antonine Baths. These baths were are among the largest baths to be built in the Roman world and were the largest such complex in North Africa. Originally built between 145 to 165 AD during the reign of the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius, the baths contained a number of rooms and chambers standard to such ancient bath complexes, including the Frigidarium (cold room), Caldarium (hot room) and Tepidarium (hot bath). Although they once stood many stories high, the remains that can be seen today are mostly from the lower level. The fascinating ruins of the Antonine Baths are a must for anyone looking to learn about the Romans during this period, and positioned against the backdrop of the Mediterranean sea, are quite the spectacle.
