marcus aurelius arch in tripoli
The Arch of Marcus Aurelius in Tripoli.

Explore Tripolitania: Oea (Tripoli), Lubdah (Leptis Magna) and Zwagha (Sabratha).

 

Day 1

Marcus Aurelius Arch

Tripoli: Arrival at Tripoli airport, where you will meet your tour guide, complete the entry formalities and escort you to your hotel in the city centre.? Depending on time of arrival, you will visit some of the sites today, and the remaining sites on the last day. Sites to visit in Tripoli include: Assaraya Alhamra Museum; the Arch of? Marcus Aurelius; and the Old? Medina.

Day 2

bust of goddess Concordia

Sabratha: morning drive to Sabratha, stopping at Janzur for a quick tour of the Berber-Punic Janzour Museum, with its stunning tomb wall paintings. Sabratha, one of Libya's world heritage sites, was originally a Berber settlements before the Phoenicians arrived to turn it into a busy trading port. The city enjoyed some success for a while, but then it was badly damaged by a number of earthquakes. Sites to visit in Sabratha include the Temples of Antoninus and Zeus, the Forum, the 2nd century Colonnaded Theatre, Sabratha Classic Museum, the Mausoleum of Bes, and the church with its unique mosaics. Return to Tripoli and then continue to Leptis Magna for the night.

Day 3

septimius severus arch

Leptis Magna: is a unique place to see, largely for one reason: being the most complete Roman city in the world. Sites to visit include: the Triumphal Arch of Septimius Severus (pictured right), the Hippodrome, the Hadrianic Baths, the? Amphitheatre, the Basilica, the Temples of Hercules and Roma, the Severn Forum, and the wonderful museum of Leptis Magna, which houses marvelous statues and fine sculptures.?

Day 4

tripoli view from the sea

Tripoli: return to the capital, and transfer to the airport for departure & farewell.

This tour can be tailored to add extra days.

 

How this holiday makes a difference?

We are a Libyan tourism company operating from Libya, we employ local services, and all our camping staff, drivers and desert experts are locals. This means that all operational costs of our tours pour directly into the Libyan economy, and booking your holiday directly with us would make a big difference to all of us in Libya. We provide real experience holidays by arranging for our visitors to meet and mix with the local people, camp and stop anywhere they like, customise their itineraries, attend cultural events and festivals where applicable, and visit local families and try traditional foods. To help preserve and support our local culture and heritage we have provided comprehensive guides and free coverage in our website of local festivals, crafts, industries, rock art galleries, and have created Libya's first online museum of Libyan museums for the world to see and visit, free of charge. Needless to say Libya's archaeological sites are nearly empty most of the time and thus provide a unique and private touring experience.

Small Group Tours

Usually we do not have a minimum requirement for our tours. But this priced tour requires a minimum of 3 people. The reason for this is to keep the cost to as low as possible while keeping the tour private (for small groups). We have also included the price for 6 people. Prices for larger groups will be calculated on request.

However, still there is the option to do this tour individually or as a couple, but the cost will have to be recalculated.

 

 


Accommodation

Itinerary Code: 
RT29
Duration:  4 Days

Price: from ?365

3-star hotels are included in the price of this tour. The price is based on two sharing a double room, and one single room (for groups of 3 people in total).

The hotel cost includes breakfasts.

All rooms are air-conditioned.

 

Hotels in Libya

If 3-star hotels were requested or included in the price then we normally use the best ones available, like Al Andalus hotel in Tripoli,? Severus hotel in Leptis Magna, and Dar Germa in Germa.

If 4-star hotels were requested or included in the price then we must inform you that these hotels can be found only in Tripoli, Benghazi and one in Ghadames. For example, we can use Alkendi hotel or the Grand Hotel (Alkabir) in Tripoli, or Almanara hotel in Apollonia; but we can use any hotel of your choice and calculate the price accordingly.

We are not affiliated with any of these hotels, and we only recommend those hotels with proven good customer feedback. We also do like the traditional style and Berber designs employed in the construction of  some hotels, like El-Khan and Zumit hotels in Tripoli and the grand Dar Ghadames hotel in Ghadames for their traditional styles that reflect the local culture as well as for their high standards and to allow our visitors to experience something different to the usual hotels.? However, you are always welcome to suggest any other hotel you like, and where there are no bookings requested or confirmed?in advance we do allow our? visitors to pick and choose their hotels as they go, after arrival, but availability during season cannot be guaranteed without booking in advance. However, if you are not specific about a particular hotel, then there are plenty of good hotels to choose from.

 

Camping Sites in Libya

Camping sites wherever to be found are also locally managed and provide basic services. Where camping sites cannot be found, your guide can either find a suitable and safe place for you to camp, or take you to the nearest hotel that provides camping places for a small fee. Some desert camping sites can be very expensive, up to 250 Libyan Dinar per a tent, and therefore these are often not included in our budget tours.   We do however provide our own tents (small and large) and other camping equipment like mats, mattresses and blankets (all new) for free camping; but we do not recommend sharing nor do we provide sleeping bags, unless on request.

 

Hostels in Libya

If hostels were requested in the program, then the quality of the service expected is provided as is. We cannot reserve rooms in hostels as there are no reservation services. Please refer to our guide to hostels in Libya for more information.

The amount to pay differs from one case to another. You will be notified via email during negotiations of how much deposit you need to pay, if any. Usually there is no deposit to pay.
