Voice of Travelers to Libya

Fascinating culture and history in Libya

I'm from Spain, and last year my family and I decided to book a family ticket to Libya. We had never been to Africa and Libya seemed like a great choice. We booked our ticket with AirFrance and got a reasonably priced ticket. Arrived in our hotel in Libya and tried to find ourselves a local giude to help us explore Libya. We were very interested in Libya's culture and history so we wanted to learn more. Buying a ticket to all the local museums is a must in Libya. If you are interested in history, Leptis Magna, Roman Sabratha, the ancient ruins of Cyrene, Ghadames City, all would leave you breathless. Our flight back home was also smooth and easy, and we all had an amazing trip to Libya: our ticket was a great choice!

Best ticket deal to Libya

Last summer I saw a newspaper advert for low ticket prices to exotic destinations (including Libya), and couldn't stop thining about the great value ticket. Eventually I spoke to my family and called AirFrance to book the ticket to Libya. The flight was surprisingly smooth and the plane was clean and modern, especially impressive given the low ticket price. We arrived in Libya and were ready to go sightseeing. We loved Libya's traditional food, friendly people, wonderful architecture and got a ticket to all the local events to get into Libya's spirit. An amazing experience with AirFrance and I would always book my tickets with this airline.
