Immerse yourself in history at Leptis Magna, Libya
The Phoenician city of Lpgy - as Leptis was known – was founded in the 1st millennium BC. In 46BC, the Romans made it part of Africa and when Septimus Severus became Emperor in 193AD, he began to transform it it into a stunning city. The remodelling was continued by his successors but unfortunately, Leptis later fell into disrepair.
Archaeologists have gradually unearthed the ruins and Leptis Magna is now a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. Visitors can see the remains of the Severan Arch, the Severan Basilica and the marketplace, and excavations are still revealing more treasures.
