Benghazi — 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. Benghazi is known for nature, historic sites, and parks. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the long history of Ptolemais, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Benghazi Zoo, soothe aching muscles at Four Seasons Center, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Omar Al-Mukhtar Mosque.

Landmarks · Ruins · Historic Sites
With a coastline looking out across the Mediterranean Sea, Libya has historically been a place of trade, development, and wealth, with empires ruling all or part of it and leaving their mark on the landscape and culture. Roman and Greek ruins and Islamic mosques remain among the main Libya attractions, but excursions into the Sahara provide an alternative for those wishing to get out of the urban sprawl and see rolling dunes, sand seas, and lively caravan towns.
