Beirut

— 10 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), Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve (in Keserwan District) and Dany Chamoun Square (in Deir el Qamar). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the history behind Jeita Grotto, visit Beirut Souks, see the interesting displays at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Beirut.
