The ruins of Uthina (also called Oudna or Oudhna) are about 45 minutes drive from Tunis. The site is little known to tourists and is still being actively excavated. If you like ancient ruins, this site is a real gem. There is an amazingly well preserved amphitheater, including some of the below ground passages and storage areas. There is a... More

Uthina is a pretty expansive ruin site. There's a very well preserved ampitheatre along with baths and a temple. Everything is well maintained with great access offered to visitors.

Uthina is situated less than an hour by road from Tunis, and is the ruin of what had been a Roman town. More impressive than what has become of the ruins of Carthage, and much closer than the more spectacular site at Dougga, much further south. The Uthina site consists of a partly-reconstructed amphitheatre; underground structures that are the remains... More

Drove to Uthina from Sousse. Passed the extensive aquaduct on our way from Zagrouan where we has visited a roman fountain. We were the only people there. The Amphitheatre was amazing. A really interesting site for those interested in Roman history. Although photography was not supposed to be allowed the helpful on site staff allowed us to take photographs. The... More

We took a day trip to the ruins, which whilst great to see and experience, the heat was unbearable and not many places to find shade. No shops on site to purchase water so just make sure you take enough to last the whole trip. Colleseum was great, the rest of it wasn't as exciting. Its also quite overpriced for... More

We had not heard of Uthina before we visited and as soon as we saw the excursion we knew we had to go see it. We went as part of an organised tour in September 2014. We saw some of the Roman aquaduct remains on the way there, this transported water from the Water Temple in the mountains to Carthidge... More

I visited Uthina without being quite sure what to expect. It was awesome. On the way there I saw the Roman aqueduct that carried water 130 km from the mountains to Carthage. The site is amazing, excavated in recent years to reveal an amphitheatre, public baths, temple, forum and many mosaics. It is not yet a tourist site so don't... More
