Travel arrangements can also be made for visiting the Roman cities of Leptis Magna and Sabratha. 
A cultural gem hidden away from Tripoli’s cosmopolitan atmosphere is the Old City, also known as Medina. The Old City is one of Libya’s remaining historical sites where travellers will find ancient buildings boasting impressive architectural details. The streets of the Medina are lined with markets selling fresh produce, clothing and household items during the day, while the cafes are brimming with young people late into the night. The Medina is easily reached by taxi from Awal Hotel. 
From the hotel one can also reach various shops selling toys, clothing, electronics, stationery supplies, artisanal honey and much more.

In addition, a fully-fledged printing shop is located beside the hotel, a facility which has proven to be of great value to many of our business travellers. 
If shopping is on your to-do list, Gargaresh Road, a ten-minute taxi ride from Awal Hotel, is definitely worth a visit. This area holds a large selection of retail stores selling high-street fashion brands such as Marks & Spencer, BHS, Aldo, and Mango. Moreover, one can find a wide variety of household, electronics and computer products. 
Martyrs’ Square is a famed landmark in downtown Tripoli, and the main commercial areas of the city surround the square, making it one of the most renowned spots for tourists to visit.
