Benghazi ©
Benghazi is the second most populous city in Libya and the largest in Cyrenaica.A port on the Mediterranean Sea in the Kingdom of Libya, Benghazi had joint-capital status alongside Tripoli, possibly because the King and the Senussi royal family were associated with Cyrenaica rather than Tripolitania.

Here are some ideas for day two: take in the spiritual surroundings of Atiq Mosque, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Omar Al-Mukhtar Mosque, and then contemplate the long history of Ptolemais.
