A tour of Tripoli usually involves a visit to the old Mamluk-style city and its harbor overlooked by a crusader citadel.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Saint Charbel Tomb and The Great Mosque. St. Stephan's Cathedral and Al Burtasiyat Madrassa-Mosque will appeal to history buffs. Explore Tripoli's surroundings by going to White Beach (in Thoum) and Byblos (Memoire Du Temps & Byblos Castle). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Khan Al-Khayyatin, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Taynal Mosque, don't miss a visit to Phoenician Wall, and step into the grandiose world of Citadel Saint Gilles (Qal'at Sinjil).
