Tyre, Sur

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.

  • I visited the city of Tyre in a combined tour with Sidon and the Valley of Maghdouche. I paid $ $90 for full day tour with lunch, with Nakhal Tour. It was a city of great importance during the Roman occupation. Guard archaeological treasures of inestimable value. One of its jewels is the best preserved from the time of the Roman occupation. All archaeological site is beautiful, it was exciting to walk by a place that brings you to a historical past. Is a tour not to be missed!
