Leptis Magna is a city by itself which was a part of the ancient Roman empire. It was made into such a wonderful site by the tremendous effort of Roman emperor Septimius Severus at late 46 BC. You will be astonished to see what all includes in this ancient city. I found a beautiful architecture of an AMPHITHEATRE. Yes, can you believe it?? It also has a huge MARKET for trade at its times,the most eye-catching is the SEVERAN ARCH and a SEVERAN BASSILICA. This man wanted his city to just the fullest of its kind I guess. Do not miss this if you got a chance to visit Libya at any time . There is no visiting time and its just free.
Here you can enjoy the beach and have a glimpse of the Leptis Magna too . It is a rare site to have the ruins of an old city near by a beach.
The beautiful lakes really tempted me to stay there for more while than we planned. They are fresh water lakes and you take a sip from them if you are really thirsty. Its a group of 20 lakes here.
The beach here is really clean and calm to enjoy the holidays and it plays an important role in the tourism of the country. The civil war has brought down the flow of tourists which on its rise back then.
