  • All right, don't trelathoume the stairs. The location was great and the staff were very helpful. If the stairs are on your way just take a picture is not worth going there, you will not see anything special

  • not quite sure why this is seen as an attraction - functional yes, nice glimpses into older yards and architecture but no sea / city views  more »
  • These are stairs. Who connect two streets. Can anybody tell me why they are in this list? Ugly dirty stairs, nothing special.  more »

  • I visited during an open air film festival. Great vibe. A couple of nice bistrôs.
  • Antique stairway to Sursock from Gemmayze Street.
  • We jumped off the Uber on Gouraud Street corner St Nicolas where stands L’Escalier de l’Art also named St Nicholas Stairs. It is the longest stairway in the Middle East where various exhibitions, festivals and open-air cinema screenings take place. St Nicholas Stairs leads to the sumptuous Sursock Museum, a symbol of Beirut’s renaissance. Find more pictures on my Instagram (kelledstyle) and more info on my blog ;-)
  • Well you may say just stairs, but st. Nicolas stairs is one of the living proofs that show how old is this city Beirut!
  • Charming place for a walk.
