Kerkouane (also Kerkuane) is in Tunisia.
A city of the Pheonician and Punic periods it was probably abandoned in 3rd century BC and, therefore, largely ignored by the Romans. As such it is probably the only example of its kind to survive. Noted for its clear demonstration of town planning techniques. The town and its necropolis are a UNESCO World Heritage List site.
Approximately 80km to the west of Tunis, equi-distant (20km) between the towns of Keliba and El Haouaria. No public transport.
