It’s time to give Libya a look. The Northern Africa country, long known for being unaccommodating to tourists, having a difficult visa process, infrastructure problems and fractious politics, has corrected many of these issues and is ready for rediscovery.
Cox & Kings has recognized this and debuted “Timeless Treasures of Libya.” The eight-day itinerary features a look at Libya’s bustling Mediterranean capital city of Tripoli, and delves into the city’s souq and medina.
Other highlights include a visit to Leptis Magna, considered one of the most unspoiled Roman ruins, and a trip to the edge of the Sahara Desert and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ghadames with its labyrinth of covered alleyways and courtyard homes.
