Slowly but surely emerging from
years of international isolation,
Libya's beauty and diversity are still relatively unknown
and, as a result, the country remains largely unspoilt. The
whitewashed capital Tripoli is, for North Africa, a quiet city,
with a good selection of restaurants and hotels. The large city
of Benghazi is the country's commercial heart. On the crossroads
of ancient civilizations, Libya's Mediterranean coast boasts the
spectacular remains of the grand Roman cities of Leptis Magna
and Sabratha, and the fine Greek cities of Cyrene and Apollonia.
Most of the country is desert and what a desert. The
more accessible in Libya, and infinitely beautiful. From the
peace of the magnificent dunes of the Idehan Murzuq to the
traditions of the old oasis cities like Ghadames and Ghat, from
the picturesque palm-fringed Ubari Lakes to the dramatic Akakus
mountains with many prehistoric rock carvings, Libya has it all.
A visit to Libya is only possible on an escorted tour, but a
local guide will add to your understanding of his country.
Libyans are warm and hospitality is a duty. Most Libyans are a
mix of Arab or Berber descent. Berbers, including Tuaregs, live
in the more remote areas and form about 10% of the population,
whilst the rest lives in the cities on the coast.
