An important ruins site in Lebanon that deserve at 2 hours, or more, of your time in Lebanon to been visited. You'll find shops, restaurants, bars and clubs all around the site, some restaurants are really nice (on the port)...
Cool visit. Worth the day trip from Beirut. Lots of nice lunch places nearby either at the marina or in the Souk area.
