Tripoli Flights Guide
The capital of Libya has seen major changes in the past few years, but although it was long ruled under the guise of a revolution, its history is one that stretches a great deal further into the past. The Phoenicians and Romans were there, as were the Egyptians and later crusader powers. Today it is a modern city, but much of its physical past has withstood modern catastrophe.
Despite the major destruction that was wrought throughout the world during times of war, Tripoli has beautiful sights that persist. The city walls remain intact, and they provide an excellent panoramic view over town. The gates that remain are also marvels unto their own. The National Museum (Jamahiriya) is a good place to get one’s bearings, and its location in the expansive Red Castle (Assaraya al-Hamra) serves one’s purpose well. Inside are many reminders of antiquity, including artifacts from Libya’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Modern Tripoli is focused around a central point at Green Square, whose name has been changed to Martyrs’ Square. From here one can find the Arch of Marcus Aurelius, which is the last remaining architectural edifice from Roman times, although Tripoli’s medina harkens to the rambling urban planning of Roman times as well. Just there at the arch, the Gurgi Mosque is located, completing a perfect tour of the city’s landmarks.
Tripoli International Airport receives flights from Libyan Airlines, EgyptAir, Lufthansa, British Airways, Buraq Air, Afriqiyah Airways and several others.
