As Libya celebrates 40 years since Colonel Gaddafi came to power, there is no better time to discover the history and culture of this ancient country.
Visit Tobruk, a site from World War II where Australian soldiers inflicted the first major German defeat, before stepping back in time in Cyrene, founded in 631BC and one of the most significant ancient Greek archeological sites in the world. Leptis Magna is also an outstanding archeological site full of limestone and marble.
Second only to Rome in its heyday, this city remained buried for around 1300 years following sand storms until its excavation in the 1920’s. The ten night “Libya Revealed” tour starts from £1240 per person tour only including B&B accommodation, some meals and transport by private van and camel. The price also includes the services of an Imaginative Traveller tour leader. Flights can be arranged at a supplement.
