    The Punic Graves 2 more images

    This is the oldest part that can still be seen. After the Roman occupation all other parts of the Punic town were destroyed and the Romans built right on top of the Punic city. The gravesite however was left untouched hence this is the oldest remaining part of Utica today.

    Next to the Punic graves one can see small hut. The key for the hut is kept by the administrator of the archaeological site and he is willing to open it for a small tip. The skeleton was removed from the graves and is a girl in her twenties. With the history of Utica one can consider that this skeleton is some 2700 years old.

    With the archaeological works many artefacts were found. Some of the items are now in display at the Utica Museum others however have been placed in museums in Tunis or around the world. This is a small museum that is worse while a visit, and the entrance to the ancient site also covers the entrance to the museum.

Utica Warnings and Dangers

  • MikeAtSea's Profile Photo
    Don���t climb on ruins

    by MikeAtSea Written Oct 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some of the ruins and antiquities one can visit are over 2000 years old and are not in the best of conditions anymore, since neither Phoenicians nor Romans can come back to fix them anymore. Hence it is a silly idea to climb onto the ruins and destroy them for others to see, or to get injured in the course of it.

    Favorite thing: The local currency is the Dinar. American Express, Visa and travellers cheques are widely accepted, and the US dollar is a good currency to carry them in. ATMs are found in almost every town large enough to support a bank and certainly in all the tourist areas. Credit cards are accepted in souvenir shops and upmarket hotels and restaurants.

    Favorite thing: All ancient sites, mosques, museums and antiquities charge a photographic fee. The ticket for this has to be purchased when one buys the entrance ticket. For each camera a separate fee has to be paid. During my visit the fee was 1 Dinar.
