Roman Mosaics, Floors that Talk

From the winding streets of the old souq, I took an equally meandering taxi ride across the city to the Bardo Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of mosaic floors from the Roman Empire.
The ancient mosaics in the Bardo Museum narrate a gripping story concerning the four-and-a-half centuries of Roman domination in ancient Tunisia.
From these mosaics, it soon becomes clear how lavishly the Romans lived in Tunisia with huge estates, outdoor banquets, entertainment, wine drinking, and public games.
I loved the ancient Jacuzzis! (I'm sorry...I couldn't resist!)
