Beirut — 4 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa) and Byblos (Old Souk, Byblos Castle, &more). And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George, examine the collection at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, and explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche.

Cairo, Egypt to Beirut is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive. When traveling from Cairo in September, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Beirut: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 28°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) so you can catch the flight back home.

Landmarks · Monuments · Ruins
With a lengthy coastline along the Mediterranean, Lebanon has attracted its share of foreign invaders, from ancient Phoenicians and Egyptians to the medieval Crusaders and Ottoman Turks. Each of these peoples left an indelible mark on the tiny country's cultural heritage, art, religious traditions, and cuisine. Though it shares a border with troubled Syria, Lebanon remains one of the Arab world's most charming destinations. A tour of Lebanon allows travelers to discover modern seaside resorts, ancient ruins, lush nature reserves, and dynamic cities. Base your Lebanon vacation in Beirut, a cosmopolitan capital known for its cafe culture and European architecture, as well as many museums, parks, and squares.
