Beautiful place full of history and art still intact and very clean. The staff is very kind and very respectful they speak good English and they can guide through the place because it is very big.

This was a wonderful place to visit. There was an amazing amphitheater and plenty of ruins. We packed a lunch and walked the shores. There were very few visitors so it was very quiet and peaceful.

And a great drive to it on the way to Misrata. The road is good and safe. The guides are honorable and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit.

I visited Leptis a couple of time in the late nineties and early 2000 when I was working in Tripoli. It was extremely well preserved and spectacular. I hope to have the opportunity to revisit in the future.
