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 a sense of the local culture at Beirut Souks and Food Tours. Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque and Tyre will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Tyre Beach (in Sur) and Tyre Hippodrome (in Tyre). And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Hamra Street, take in the spiritual surroundings of Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George, don't miss a visit to Zaitunay Bay, and gain insight at American University of Beirut.

For photos, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Beirut trip planner.
