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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Old Souk (in Byblos) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Jounieh). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Jeita Grotto, get a taste of the local shopping with Beirut Souks, admire all the interesting features of American University of Beirut, and indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink.

To find ratings, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read Beirut trip itinerary planning app .
