Beirut — 5 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 Byblos (Old Souk, Byblos Castle, &more) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, gain insight at American University of Beirut, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut, and see the interesting displays at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Beirut day trip planner.

Drive from Zahle to Beirut in 1.5 hours. In September, daily temperatures in Beirut can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.

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.
