  • Don’t think, just get here and be amazed at the exquisite, the vast, the incredible, the stunning and absolutely mind blowing sight which is Baalbek! Words can’t even come close to describing the wonder of this place. Try to go here without a timeframe so you can spend all day exploring the entire masterpiece!
  • Absolutely spectacular. I highly recommend you hire one of the local guides from the entrance. He or she will impart so much interesting knowledge that one never would get on one's own. I was blown away by the history of this place dating back to the Phoenicians.
  • Serene beauty. While not open to get closeup these columns are graceful and compliment the temples gracefully. Beautiful at sunrise and sunset.
  • This place is spectacular. Truly a world wonder. If you’re in Lebanon you must go here on a free day. The temples are well preserved and awesome (this word gets thrown about a lot but here it is appropriate, it draws awe from those who visit).
  • Great History Lesson in Greek Mythology. The Roman Ruins are indeed spectacular, definitely a must see when visiting Lebanon. It gets really windy and cold in the Winter so make sure you dress appropriately! Also involved a lot of walking around and climbing steps so comfy shoes are an essential
