From the National Museum of Carthage to the Antonine Baths, Carthage, Tunisia

The first floor of the National Museum of Carthage includes several sculptures and many artifacts of ancient Carthage.  The museum also holds a mosaic entitled “Pots of Roses in a Rose Garden”, but this mosaic is not actually from Carthage but rather from Sidi Ghrib, an archeological site located 30 km from Tunis.  Traveling then to the Antonine Baths, the route passes ancient Phoenician graves, some of the few visible remains of the city before the Romans.  Finally, just before reaching the Antonine Baths, the route follows a Roman Road, made of stone.
