Tripoli

The city was founded in the 7th century by Phoenicians, who named it Oea  and currently is one of the most important cities on the Libyan coast. One of the most popular monuments in the city is the Arch of Marcus Aurelius  from the 2nd century AD. Also  the well-preserved old town, historic mosques and churches are worth seeing. Close to the old town there is an interesting city area dating back to the Italian era (Libya was an Italian colony). Precious archeological pieces of art can be found in the Saraya Museum. In small shops of the old town one can find attractive souvenirs, pottery, and old jewellery.
