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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Beit Eddine and Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque. Shop till you drop at Beirut Souks and Hamra Street. Get out of town with these interesting Beirut side-trips: Atelier Assaf (in Warhanieh), Palace of Emir Younes Maan (in Deir el Qamar) and Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut, explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, examine the collection at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, and don't miss a visit to Corniche Beirut.
