Mermaid of the Mediterranean
The "Mermaid of the Mediterranean," Libyan capital Tripoli exudes a mix of Mediterranean charm and Arabic-Islamic cultural sensibility. The city's history dates back to the 7th century BCE, when the Phoenicians established what was then called Oea on one of North Africa's best natural harbors. In more recent history, the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi brought about a state of chaos in the city and nation. Witness the combination of influences displayed in Tripoli's attractions, from Roman ruins and artifacts to the remnants of the Ottoman era. Take a tour of Tripoli's medina, where winding streets combine with classical statues and bath houses. Use our Libya trip planner to arrange your visit to Tripoli and any other destinations in Libya that take your fancy.
