The historical centre, identified as those parts within the limits of the ancient Imperial walls, contains archaeological remains from Ancient Rome. These are continuously being excavated and opened to the public, such as the Colosseum; the Roman Forum, and the Catacombs. There are areas with remains from Medieval times.
Ancient Carthage (/ ˈ k ɑːr θ ɪ dʒ /) was a city in modern Tunisia, and also the name given to the city-state and empire it eventually gained. The settlement was founded by the Phoenicians in the ninth century BC and the city-state was destroyed by the Romans in 146 BC, though they later rebuilt the city lavishly.
