Tripoli - Post Report Question and Answers
What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?
There are few things worth writing about, but the few are very spectacular. Visit Sabratha, Leptis Magna, and Villa Sileen. These three sites are easy to find, you can go by car, and they are hands down some of the coolest Roman ruins you will ever see. Go see the desert, Ghadames, Gharyan, Nalut, et alia. There is much to be discovered out in the desert if you are the adventurous type. There are cultural / music festivals, and these are worth checking out. The festivals in Ghat and Ghadames are the most spectacular. BenGhazi and the Green Mountains are another culture-rich area worth seeing. - Jan 2007
