Benghazi, Libya

— 2 nights
Benghazi is the second most populous city in Libya and the largest in Cyrenaica.A port on the Mediterranean Sea in the Kingdom of Libya, Benghazi had joint-capital status alongside Tripoli, possibly because the King and the Senussi royal family were associated with Cyrenaica rather than Tripolitania. On the 1st (Wed), steep yourself in history at Benghazi Cathedral, then soothe aching muscles at Four Seasons Center, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Omar Al-Mukhtar Mosque, and finally contemplate the long history of Ptolemais. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jebel Akhdar.
