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: Byblos (Byblos Castle, Saint Charbel Tomb, & more), Temples of Baalbek (in Baalbeck) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa). And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic natural features at Jeita Grotto, examine the collection at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque.
