Leptis Magna, Al Khums

4.9
Explore one of the best-preserved ancient Roman cities in the Mediterranean at Leptis Magna. You'll learn about its past, including its construction by Phoenicians and Berbers in the 2nd century BCE, and its flourishing under the Italian merchants. While a part of the city's temple now stands in a park in the UK, much remains untouched on site. Look for the five perfectly preserved and masterfully rendered pool and floor mosaics, depicting scenes of a warrior with a deer, four wrestlers, and gladiator fights--the last one considered among the finest mosaics in the world.
