We begin our 13-day tour of Libya in the capital and largest city, Tripoli. Once known as the 'white bride of the Mediterranean', this city was built by the Phoenicians in the 6th century BC, boasts a wealth of historic sites, like mosques, fortresses and Roman baths and retains an Arab charm now lost in many Libya's other metropolises. We travel through UNESCO-designated ancient centres of cities, where we glean an idea of how people lived hundreds of years ago, and admire uniquely preserved Saharan architecture and design in oases whose houses are built from mud, lime, palm-tree trunks and leaves. Heading to Cyrene, we find the best-preserved of the Greek cities of Cyrenaica. Founded in the 7th century AD, Cyrene has since been visibly influenced by the Carthaginians, Greeks, Egyptians and Romans; we take time to explore its intricate temples, mesmerizing tombs and majestic theatres, as well as appreciate its stunning panoramas atop a bluff that overlooks the sea. Tobruk, a city made famous by its staging of a bloody and tragic battle that proved to be the turning point of the Second World War, and Leptis Magna, one of the great cities of Roman Africa that is perhaps the most extensive and impressive archaeological site in the Mediterranean, are our final destinations on this educational cultural journey through Libya.
