Excellent place

It was a good visit to an historical place but found it badly managed. Good sea view from the site. Nothing is fenced so anyone can come and damage.

When we visited here we wasn't sure what to expect and was on a tour and didn't know about it until the day but i have to say it was my favourite place we visited. there is so much to see and to walk around, you can go anywhere in the park without restrictions and the views are breathtaking, definitely...

Amazing Roman site right by sea. Recommend visit in Spring when flowers out and colours of sea and flora gorgeous. But don't recommend visiting on Saturday when busy. Got there just after 9.00 when huge and noisy school groups arrived. Kids well behaved but urged by teachers to sing noisily despite signs asking visitors to be quiet. Sad to see... More

Just wonderful. Great position, with ruins arriving right at the seaside, well preserved despite the fact that nothing is fenced! People can walk on huge a mosaic floor, sit on ruins, kids play football in the theatre...incredible. If you leave the most crowded areas and head to the cemetery, the atmosphere becomes really magic, transcending the centuries that have passed.... More

Seeing the ruins was surreal. It's crazy that we can just touch them and stand on them. The locals picnic in the ruins. My favorite part to this park was the view of the sea. After make sure to go shopping to get authentic pottery, antiques and rugs. Also enjoy lunch! Plenty of options. Another hidden gem of Algeria.

Spent a lovely afternoon at this Roman and Berber ruin. Our guide was an archeologist and it was tremendously helpful to learn a lot from him. The steps at places were uneven and might be difficult to someone with limited mobility. The old mosaics are outstanding especially one of a swastika. These ruins are reminiscent of the ones at Tulum... More

The place is poorly managed and maintained. No signs or info anywhere. Trash throughout the park. Ticket was only half a dollar.

I visited Tipasa as part of a tailor made itinerary by Expert Algeria owned by Algerian Ahcicene who is Algerian and has travelled extensively around the world. This site was typical of the outstanding sightseeing and historical sites available to see in this country. Well signposted, cheap entry and much to see with amazing Roman ruins which are well maintained... More

Right in the heart of Tipasa is the archeological site. Quite tidy and well sorted out. Very clean when compared with other areas . As it is only an hour away from the capital Algiers, you might take a three-hour off from the city and visit the place. It is well worth the time spent.

I did just a short walk through the park, but I was busted by the amount of Roman ruins showing the importance of this place in ancient times.
