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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Byblos (Memoire Du Temps, Byblos Castle, &more) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Jeita Grotto, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, see the interesting displays at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, and wander the streets of Hamra Street.

To see traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Beirut journey planner.
