The city of Tripoli in Libya is an interesting and unusual holiday destination that has been avoided because of some of the strife and sanctions set upon western travellers. Because of this, many of the sites that are available to visit are new to even the most seasoned traveller. But travelling to Tripoli is safe when the proper precautions are taken, and the many antiquities and varied scenery are well worth the trip.
When packing for this trip, it is advisable that you bring appropriate clothing, as this is a conservative Muslim nation. As a guest there, you are expected to respect their customs in dress and behaviour. If you can do that then the city of Tripoli will be a wonderful place to visit. The city itself is serviced by most major European and Arab airlines and getting around the country is best done with car hire services, taxis, or by microbus. There are public transportation services between Tripoli and other cities and even though most everything else is expensive in the country, this is not.
