Benghazi Travel Guide: 68 reviews and 327 photos
Benghazi is the second large city of Libya. In the old city we visited the area close to the lighthouse, the only place where you can find some remains from the ancient times.
Close to the lighthouse is the Acacus house with a small ethnographical museum, an exhibition of wooden sculptures made by a local artist and a nicily furnished room where you can drink tea and order local dishes.
From here you are also almost in the covered souqs, a nice area to stroll around for a while. I always enjoy the souqs because of their lifely atmosphere at one hand and to find out about the daily life by what they are selling at the other hand.
We ended our walk close to the square with the historical townhall. En route we walked through many alleyways and saw a lot of mosques built in different styles. Close to the townhall is a renovated arcaded shopping street where we found even an African souvenirshops.
We came from Tripoli to Benghazi by plane, a fokker. It was a comfortable morning flight of less than one hour. Benina... more travel advice
