Event Details

The country has a plethora of magnificent cities to visit and exciting activities to enjoy with a strong emphasis on its cultural tourism market; indeed, cultural tourism is likely the most significant reason why travelers head to Libya as they are eager to discover and explore the many ruins and remains left behind by the likes of the Greeks and Romans.

The city of Ghadames is one of Libya’s most historically important cities as it was used not only as a pivotal trade route, but also because it is home to an abundant freshwater spring that kept the town’s oasis full. Ghadames is one of the best-preserved Arab towns in the region and is under UNESCO protection to continue preserving its significant ruins and remains.

With so much emphasis on culture and heritage, it is only fitting that the city plays host to an annual festival celebrating its status from the past and its ongoing commitment to preserving its long-standing traditions.

The Ghadames Festival is held in mid-October each year and is a vibrant and effervescent affair where the local townsfolk meet to eat, drink, sing, and dance.

It is a truly wonderful experience for those visiting the country to witness such a celebration of spirit and camaraderie, and visitors are urged to join in and enjoy the festivities.

Leptis Magna is 100km south east of the capital Tripoli and is located on the country’s Mediterranean coastline. Leptis is the largest Roman city in Libya and its artifacts and remains are amongst the best preserved and most complete in the region; it further has the added benefit of not being as over-populated as some other Roman constituencies found in North Africa and Southern Europe.

Leptis is believed to have been discovered as early as 7BC by the Phoenicians and eventually formed a part of the new Roman province in Africa that had taken control in 23BC.

Sabratha, just 65km west of the capital Tripoli, is one of Libya’s greatest Roman cities and extensively documents the rich elite dwellings of Roman North Africa.

The Sabratha Museum is a classic tribute to this era with its stunning collection of colorful mosaics being one of the facility’s most prominent features.
