Continuously inhabited for at least 7,000 years, World Heritage-listed Byblos has genuine claims to the title of one of the oldest cities in the world. The charming Mediterranean port's history remains visible in many of its buildings, including a castle from the time of the Crusades, an ancient souk, temples dating back to around 2700 BCE, and an iconic harbor.

Where to stay in Byblos

Most visitors choose to explore Byblos on a day trip from Beirut. Most of the accommodations in Byblos itself cater to upmarket travelers, with comfortable hotels and luxury resorts offering all the creature comforts you'd expect. A handful of these lie close to the beach, while others can be found nestled within the walls of the old town. Larger, more modern options sit just outside the historic center, so as not to clash with the old aesthetic.
