Libya is a crossroads of history, continents and ancient empires. Home to the Mediterranean’s richest store of Roman and Greek cities, Sabratha, Cyrene and, above all, Leptis Magna each of which is overlaid by remnants of Byzantine splendour, it’s a place where history comes alive through the extraordinary monuments on its shores. Every corner of cosmopolitan Tripoli resonates with a different period of history. It’s where the Sahara meets the Mediterranean.Set on one of North Africa’s best natural harbours, Tripoli exudes a distinctive Mediterranean charm infused with a decidedly Arabic-Islamic flavour. Tripoli is Libya’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Its rich mosaic of historical influences from Roman ruins and artefacts to the Ottoman era medina.
