Beirut

— 6 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.
Zingy Ride has been added to your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Pigeon Rocks in Raouche and Lazy B Beach Club. Do some cultural sightseeing at National Museum of Beirut and Beirut Souks. Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Temples of Baalbek (in Baalbeck), Tyre Beach (in Sur) and Chir Bay (in Jiyeh). Next up on the itinerary: get a taste of the local shopping with Hamra Street, see the interesting displays at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, don't miss a visit to Zaitunay Bay, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. George Maronite Cathedral.
