To whoever rode Libya (and visited Leptis Magna)
I and my girlfriend are planning our summer trip for 2010, which is Samarkand and the Stans overland from Italy.
But if we won't have enough days allowance from our boss, we will be forced to direct our interest to closer places: I mean Tunisia and Libya, which are only 1-day sail from Italy.
Two Countries that we mean to visit in 14 days (9 for Tunisia and 5 for Libya).
My question is: how do you guys succeeded in riding Libya and in finding the places to see if road signs are only in Arabic?
I ask you this because we'd mean to visit Leptis Magna, which is not on the main coast road... How did you get there?
On the other side, we would prefer not to hire a guide cuz we wanna reduce the expenses (it also seems that there's no guide mandatory if you remain on the coast road).
Another question: is it possible to visit Leptis in one day or is it necessary to reserve two full days?
Are female tourists required to cover their hair?
Thanks to whoever can bring me his experience.
