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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Beit Eddine and Mim Museum - Mineral Museum. Museum-lovers will appreciate Nicolas Sursock Museum and Memoire Du Temps. Explore Beirut's surroundings by going to Palace of Beiteddine (in Beiteddine), Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve (in Barouk) and White Beach (in Thoum). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Mleeta Landmark, examine the collection at Banque Du Liban Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at ABC Mall, and identify plant and animal life at Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve.
