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 (Miky's Accessories, Old Souk, &more). And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, take in the dramatic natural features at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, and make a trip to Zaitunay Bay.

To see other places to visit, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Beirut trip builder.
