Beirut — 6 nights

Paris of the East

Sitting on the Mediterranean coast, Beirut, the country's capital and largest city, has plenty of appeal itself, as well as offering a convenient base for exploring the country's other sights and cities.
Get out of town with these interesting Beirut side-trips: Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa), Byblos (Memoire Du Temps, Byblos Castle, &more) and Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve (in Keserwan District). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, wander the streets of Beirut Souks, shop like a local with Hamra Street, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut.

To see maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Beirut trip builder.
