Introducing Tripoli

Travel Alert: The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommends against all non-essential travel to Tripoli, please check with your relevant national government.

Set on one of North Africa’s best natural harbours, Tripoli exudes a distinctive Mediterranean charm infused with a decidedly Arabic-Islamic flavour. Tripoli (Al-Tarablus in Arabic) is Libya’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Its rich mosaic of historical influences – from Roman ruins and artefacts to the Ottoman-era medina – will leave few travellers disappointed.
