THE WONDERS OF LIBYA 8 DAYS FROM EUR945.

THE WONDERS OF LIBYA 8 DAYS FROM EUR945.


Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive to Tripoli
Ahlaan wasahlaan "Welcome" to Libya - we are warmly welcomed and after clearing Custom and Immigration, we are met at the exit gate and transferred to our hotel. The drive gives us our first glimpse into the life of the people who live in the capital city.
Overnight: Kabir Hotel or similar, Tripoli (1 night) (D)

Day 2: Tripoli / Benghazi (Flight)
Your Libyan experience starts with a tour of Tripoli, founded by the Phoenicians in 1000 B.C. and later conquered by the Romans. Our tour of this beautiful metropolis covers the huge fortress, the National Museum, the old souq and the Islamic quarters. Later in the day we are transferred to the airport for our short flight to the second largest and most beautiful city of Libya, Benghazi. Upon arrival in Benghazi we are met and transferred to our hotel. Evening we enjoy a typical dinner at a local restaurant.
Overnight: Uzo Hotel, Benghazi (1 night) (B, L, D)


Day 3: Benghazi / El Beyda
(Drive 210kms / 130miles)
Our day starts with a tour of this beautiful resort city of Libya. The second largest city of the Jamariya houses a spectacularly maintained War cemetery (Libya played a major role in the North African Korps). We see the old town with its artistically designed buildings, and colourful souq. Benghazi also offers us the opportunity to meet the Libyan folks and enjoy tea with very friendly people who have lived history in the making for several thousand years. An interesting drive along the eastern coast gets us to the small town of El Beyda. El Beyda might not be much in terms of tourism, but it is the best base for those exploring the great ruins of Cyrene, Apollonia, and Slonta. It also has a number of colonial-style buildings, as well as an Islamic university. The religious importance of El Beyda harks back to the Sanussiyy movement that has had a formative impact on modern Libya.
Overnight: Loloat Jabel Hotel, El Beyda (2 nights) (B, L, D)

Day 4: Cyrene & Apollonia
Our journey today starts with a visit to the World Heritage Site of Cyrene. The city was part of the 1st century five city state of Pentapolis and was second in size only to Athens. Cyrene was founded by the Greeks in 631 B.C. and was later occupied by the Romans and then the Arabs. We also visit the famous temples of Zeus and Apollo and after lunch we visit incredible Apollonia (Sousa), which was the port of Cyrene and is located 20 kms / 12 miles to the north. Here our visit includes a detailed visit of the majestic Theatre, the Roman baths as well as the Byzantine palace. (B, L, D)

Day 5: El Beyda / Qasr Libya / Benghazi (Drive 210kms / 130miles) / Tripoli
A morning drive through Jabel Akhdar gets us to Qasr Libya where we visit an interesting museum that houses more than 50 pieces of mosaic artifact fragments dating back to the 6th century AD. Our next stop is Ptolemais, the former capital of Pentapolis, offering today remains of palaces, theatres, Bouleterion and a 3rd century bridge. Lunch at a local restaurant and then we have some free time in Benghazi before we are transferred to the airport for our flight to Tripoli. At Tripoli we are met and transferred to our hotel.
Overnight: Kabir Hotel or simlar, Tripoli (3 nights) (B, L, D)

Day 6: Leptis Magna
The highlight of any journey to Libya is visiting the renowned World Heritage Site of Leptis Magna located east of Tripoli. From a Berber settlement it became an important community when it was established as a city by the Canaanites and reached its climax under the rule of Roman Emperor Septimus Severus. We visit the vast site including the Triumphal Arch, huge Basilica, Forum, Public Baths, Hippodrome, and Amphitheater etc. Lunch will be at the local restaurant at the site before returning to Tripoli. (B, L, D)

Day 7: Sabratha
Amongst all the coastal sites, Sabratha stands out as the most beautiful. A World Heritage Site, Sabratha was founded by the Canaanites (6th c. B.C.), ruled by Carthage, Phoenicia, Numedia and then Rome in 46 B.C. The site offers a majestic collection of public buildings, arenas, temples of Liber Peter, Srapis, Isis, and Hercules. Tripoli " Oea" (the bride) of the Mediterranean is the capital of Libya. (B, L, D)
