Fondata nel IX secolo a.C., dalla regina fenicia Didone, sulla collina di Byrsa, in una splendida posizione dominante il Golfo di Tunisi, Cartagine fu una delle città più importanti del mondo antico, una fra le prime culture cosmopolite del Mediterraneo.
L'antica rivale di Roma, si scontrò con l'inarrestabile espansione dell'Impero Romano, combattendo le tre Guerre Puniche per oltre un secolo.
Nel 44 a.C. divenne colonia Romana sotto Giulio Cesare. Ne restano oggi solo le rovine in uno splendido parco archeologico, i cui scavi hanno riportato alla luce preziosi reperti e le vestigia che si pensava fossero andati completamente perduti a seguito della distruzione della città avvenuta dopo il lungo e cruento conflitto con i Romani.
La visita al sito archeologico consente di riconoscere, nella stratificazione delle macerie di epoche diverse, resti di case romane, un anfiteatro, mosaici di epoca bizantina, tracciati di basiliche e battisteri, cisterne e una necropoli punica.
La collina di Byrsa è dominata anche dall'imponente Cattedrale di St. Louis, costruita nel 1890, una strana miscela di stile bizantino e moresco, con una splendida vista sul porto punico.
Indosso una splendida creazione di "Pourquoime", un top realizzato in un tessuto pregiato con la cura artigianale dei dettagli,  un capo unico ed esclusivo, come ogni singola creazione del brand, rigorosamente Made in Italy. Un giacchino in pizzo e un paio di pants, nella sfumatura più solare e più glam di stagione, completano il mio look, mentre passeggio tra le rovine, ammirando l'invidiabile posizione del sito, la bellezza delle vestigia, cercando di immaginare la grandezza e la magnificenza della città di un tempo.
(Clicca qui, qui e qui se vuoi vedere i miei post dall'antica Acropoli di Atene).
(Clicca qui, qui e qui per saperne di più sul "Primrose Yellow", la sfumatura di giallo più cool di stagione).

Carthage is located on a hilly promontory overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, an ideal strategic location in north-east Tunisia, about 15 km east of Tunis.  It was founded in 814 BC by the seafaring Phoenicians and became a highly prosperous Phoenician port city.  The Phoenicians ruled the seas from their strategic port at Carthage for almost 800 years but – after many epic battles – the city was taken by the Roman emperor Julius Caeser in 44 BC and leveled.
The Archaeological Park in Carthage is a territory with outlines of the residential area of the ancient Roman city located near the baths of Antoninus Pius.
In the Archaeological Park are well-preserved Punic burial VI-V centuries BC, the Basilica with nave Dating from the VI century BC, the underground crypt of the seventh century and other historic sites. The Park is under UNESCO protection. 
The hill of Byrsa is also dominated by the imposing St. Louis Cathedral, built in 1890, a strange mix of Byzantine and Moorish style with a splendid view of the Punic Harbor.
I'm wearing a beautiful creation of "Pourquoime", a top made of a fine fabric with the craftsmanship of details, a unique and exclusive piece, like every single creation of this brand, strictly Made in Italy. A lace cropped jacket and a pair of pants in the trendiest color of the season complete my look while I'm walking through the ruins, admiring the enviable location of the site, the beauty of the vestiges, trying to imagine the grandeur and the magnificence of the ancient city.

  61. ma quanto sei bella con cappeli alla Pippi...sei adorabile! Anche il outfit e molto chic...il blu con il giallo e uno di miei preferiti combinazioni di colori...

    Sono sicura che Cartagine merita una visita e che e un posto molto interessante e bello per visitare...una citta cosi antica devo essere affascinante...Cartagine era una di piu notabile culture del Mediterraneo. Sono perfette le fue foto...una location splendida.
