The limestone and marble ruins of Leptis Magna on Libya's coast could be a hive of activity, but conflict has left one of ancient Rome's great Mediterranean cities isolated from the outside world.Conflict left Libya with competing governments, hampering both national and international conservation efforts.Its Italian founder, Gianluca Pardelli, said about 60 non-Arab tourists had traveled to Libya last year, and his company had brought six people to the country since launching in May.Pardelli sees huge potential in Libya, including tourism for Italians whose families once settled in the former colony, though he doesn't offer trips to ruins at Sabratha, western Libya, Cyrene in the east or to the Sahara Desert.
