View on main mosque in Tripoli

Tripoli continues to be one of the most beautiful cities along the Mediterrenean Sea. Friendly people - important monuments, like the national museum - the medina - the green place....

The Al-Fatah Tower

Modern business center at the coast side of modern Tripoli.
The infrastructure of Libya's capital Tripoli has benefited from the country's oil wealth.

Arch of Marcus Aurelius

The only remaining witness of a roman empire
Built in 163 AD in the Greek style this arch straddles the decumanus maximus and the cardo-maximus ( means mainstreets) in the ancient Roman city of Oea which is now Tripoli. Parts of it are re-used in newer buildings in the medina.
Located : near the harbour - former french ambassy and the unique Medina

    It has been a long time since I was in North Africa, so your Tripoli page brought back some distant memories. I was not aware that you were so terrified of "masseurs" ;))

    More great photos of Libya. New building continues apace in Tripoli - the face of the city is changing rapidly. LEYLE

    Really loved your photographs from the Tripoli Museum. As a big mythology fan, I always enjoy these statues. A fascinating page about a place I've never visited but heard about all my life.

    One very important point about the Athar is that it actually has a menu, which means you do not end up with more food than you can eat and you can check your bill here against the menu. We found this the best restaurant partly for its brilliant location.

    Fine photos! I never thought there would be such impressive works of art at the Tripoli Museum.

    Arch of Marcus Aurelius and National Museum seem to be worth watching and visiting. Thanks Luc for the virtual tour which still lays far from Russian tourist tracks... Best regards from Moscow in our Orthodox Christmas Eve!
