Tour 1 – Ancient Heritage between Sea and Desert
First Day
Arrival in Tripoli and Transfer to Gharian.
Second Day
We’ll visit the ancient underground houses of the Berber. Drive to the Berber-villages of Yefrin, Jado and Kabao. Our route takes us via Sinawen Derij to Ghadames.
Third Day
On the third day we will visit the Unesco World Heritage-listed city of Ghadames, where we'll have a traditional lunch in one of its old town houses. At late afternoon we’ll drive to the lake of Mojazem through the spectacular Sahara dunes, where we'll enjoy the beautiful sunset. Back to Hotel.
Fourth Day
In the early morning we drive to Tripoli, passing by the castle of Nalut, where we'll see one of the biggest and best preserved examples of a Berber granary. The next granary we'll see is Qasr al-Hadj surrounded by its old Berber-village.
Fifth Day
We'll visit the Roman excavations of Sabratha. The ruins of Sabratha boast one of the finest theatres of antiquity. According to its history, Punic settlers from the neighbouring stronghold of Carthago choose the site because of its safe harbour. By the end of the 1st century AD, the last vestiges of Punic influence began to die out under the inexorable weight of Romanisation in the region. In the late afternoon we drive back to Tripolis where we'll have the chance to visit the old city and Souq of Tripolis.
Sixth Day
In the early morning we drive to Leptis Magna and dive into the history of the Roman Empire in the „Provincia Africana“. One of Leptis´ signature monuments is the Arch of Septimus Severus. It was built in 203 AD to commemorate the emperor and his family and to mark his visit to his native city. One of the social hubs of the city were the Hadrianic Baths, which still give us a glimpse of the utmost luxury in which Romans lived at that time.
Seventh Day
We spend the whole day in Tripoli and start with a visit to the National Museum and explore the many different stories of the country with its mosques and churches, colonial buildings and palaces. The Souqs in the old town give us a fine example of every day life in the Orient: A glance over the shoulder of the coppersmith, the multicoloured materials and the ready information of the dealers to the tourists.
Eight Day
In the morning you’ll have the possibility to do some shopping or enjoy a visit to one of the hammams of the city. Tripolis is a safe city were you can move freely or take a taxi and ask for advice or information – Libyans have a warm heart and would not say no! In the afternoon transfer to the airport.
