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 (Memoire Du Temps, Byblos Castle, & more) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa). There's much more to do: Head underground at Jeita Grotto, make a trip to Zaitunay Bay, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, and wander the streets of Beirut Souks.

For traveler tips, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read Beirut trip planner.

Cairo, Egypt to Beirut is an approximately 2-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Cairo in September, you will find days in Beirut are little chillier (36°C), and nights are about the same (28°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) so you can drive to Zahle.
