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 Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa) and Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Beirut, pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, gain insight at American University of Beirut, and explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche.

To find traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Beirut trip builder website.

Cairo, Egypt to Beirut is an approximately 2.5- hour flight. You can also drive. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in November, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) early enough to drive to Baalbeck.
