Catch a glimpse of the past at Libya's Sabratha, the ancient ruins of a once mighty Phoenician trading post. Located on the shores of the Mediterranean, this is where products from the African interior where brought for transport to foreign markets. While a city still exists here, it's the ruins that hold the most interest for PlanetHoppers! The massive amphitheater provides the classic backdrop to the site as you tour the ancient temples and Roman baths. But perhaps the most sobering thought is the fact that 2,000 years ago, this city was at the very center of a global empire and today it is no more than a backwater that time has almost forgotten.
