I hope Libya and the rest of North Africa recover from the troubles that have been plaguing them, as they have a wonderful heritage and very friendly people. This ancient attraction is one of the most beautiful and intact Roman ruins I have ever visited....More

A Roman site in excellent condition. It was not your stereotypical tourist attraction when I went, as there was no fancy signs or people trying to sell you miniature versions of the ruins or food and drink etc.. It was quite simply the Roman ruins....More

Sabratha is not as big nor as impressive as Leptis but still worth the visit especially as the theatre is in a better state that that in Leptis. As you walk through the doors you can see the theatre on your right, the sun shinning...More
