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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Hamra Street and Beirut Souks. Escape the urban bustle at LAZY B BEACH CLUB and Jeita Grotto. Venture out of the city with trips to Palace of Emir Younes Maan (in Deir el Qamar), Atelier Assaf (in Warhanieh) and Barouk (Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve & Shouf Biosphere Reserve). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, make a trip to Zaitunay Bay, and explore the historical opulence of Beit Eddine.
