Tunisia is well known for it's wonderful Roman mosaics,Carthage was "in" Tunisa.
There is a museum in Tunis containing the best of the mosaics that have been excavated. The museum is housed in the former royal palace and named after the president Bougiba (sp?) - one of them is so big it takes up the whole of the floor of the ballroom! I am almost positive that I saw that mosaic there when on my honeymoon 26 years ago. There are hundreds of mosaics in this museum, rooms of them - it is truly amazing.
