#1 of 16 in Things to do in South Governorate
Explore Tyre, an ancient Phoenician city home to many excavated ruins originating from various civilizations. Situated on a peninsula by the Mediterranean Sea, it features pristine beaches and blue waters. Wander by foot or catch a taxi to the archaeological sites, including the Roman hippodrome (ancient stadium)--the most popular site that's listed as a World Heritage Site. The ruins include a grand necropolis with several hundreds preserved sarcophagi. Stop to see the hot spring ruins for their Roman architecture. An old Phoenician port by the beach features numerous restaurants and ideal views of the coastline. The site also includes a lighthouse, a good spot for watching the sunset. Put Tyre into our Sur trip planning app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Loved the area, history and the site. You should definitely visit this place. Near the beach and lots of shops. I Recommend it  more »
  • Their you can find the best beach across Lebanon, add to that the Ancient Roman Fort and Playground, but unfortunately not been taken care of as it should be.  more »
  • A pretty town on the beach with a nice walk to do. The old town offers us a nice show of narrow streets and colourful houses. A real pleasure to venture there under a beautiful Sun!
