For those travelers who are interested in ancient historical sites, Libya offers 2 of the best Roman Ruins in the world and top of the class in Africa. Sabratha and Leptis Magna are considered to be the best Roman ruins in Africa and well worth a visit on your tour to Libya.
Sabratha, located in the North West of Libya was built in the 2nd or 3rd century. Filled with amazing history and Roman secrets, Sabratha is a highlight of Libya. The theater of Sabratha is perhaps the most striking piece of architecture…a picturesque site especially at sundown.
Leptis Magna, one of the world’s largest Roman cities is a jewel in the rough. Reported only 20% excavated, Leptis Magna offers a wide variety of pillars, mosaics, theaters, and more. UNESCO has named this magnificent site as a world heritage site. Make sure to take some time to visit the Amphitheater and museum which are truly stunning.
For the Roman scholar, both Sabratha and Leptis will take you back to life in the ancient days. Make sure you bring your camera (there is a camera fee) and enjoy capturing these 2000 year old sites.
