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.
Get out of town with these interesting Beirut side-trips: Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa) and The Great al-Omari Mosque (in Sidon). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Jeita Grotto, see the interesting displays at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, make a trip to Corniche Beirut, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hamra Street.

Before you visit Beirut, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Cairo, Egypt to Beirut is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Cairo in August, you will find days in Beirut are little chillier (38°C), and nights are about the same (30°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Baalbeck.
