It's a bit difficult to reach if you don't have private transportation at your disposal (though there did seem to be a number of guided tour excursions), but I would, in hindsight, certainly have rented a vehicle just to go see this. You won't find Punic remains like this anywhere else in Europe; the city's destruction in 396 BCE and the subsequent abandonment of large-scale occupation of the island allowed significant remains from the Punic city to remain, including an impressive gate complex in the north and the sacred area in the southwest. Only portions of the island are excavated, though the entire island was occupied at the city's pinnacle, which may be a good thing, as there is just enough excavated to see without getting overwhelmed.
