Saifi Village, Beirut

3.5
#6 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Beirut
Meander through charming streets lined by art boutiques and upscale shops at Saifi Village, a renovated development inspired by colonial French architecture. Boasting over 50 designer shops, the area was once on the front line of the Lebanese Civil War. Wind you way around quaint lanes of art galleries and cafes, watching the world go by in the central square and gardens before choosing one of several fine dining establishments for sit-down meal with friends and family. A hub for local events, the district hosts regular artisan and farmers markets. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Beirut trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
