Beirut

— 4 nights

Paris of the East

Sitting on the Mediterranean coast, Beirut, the country's capital and largest city, has plenty of appeal itself, as well as offering a convenient base for exploring the country's other sights and cities.
Venture out of the city with trips to Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa) and Byblos (Miky's Accessories, Old Souk, &more). There's much more to do: make a trip to Zaitunay Bay, explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, and deepen your understanding at American University of Beirut.

To find other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Beirut holiday planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Beirut. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in April, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to drive to Zahle.

With a lengthy coastline along the Mediterranean, Lebanon has attracted its share of foreign invaders, from ancient Phoenicians and Egyptians to the medieval Crusaders and Ottoman Turks. Each of these peoples left an indelible mark on the tiny country's cultural heritage, art, religious traditions, and cuisine. Though it shares a border with troubled Syria, Lebanon remains one of the Arab world's most charming destinations. A tour of Lebanon allows travelers to discover modern seaside resorts, ancient ruins, lush nature reserves, and dynamic cities. Base your Lebanon vacation in Beirut, a cosmopolitan capital known for its cafe culture and European architecture, as well as many museums, parks, and squares.
