Abstract:

In 2008 and 2009 the Archeotema society (Venice, Italy) was contracted by the Libyan government to outline a project for the management of the underwater archaeological sites of Libya as places for underwater tourism. The project was part of a general remit of Evaluation and Conservation of the Cultural Libyan Heritage.

A selected site was Apollonia in Cyrenaica. The ancient harbour with all its structures allowed for the visualisation of a real park with an itinerary for divers and a glass-bottom boat for people to see from the surface.
