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 explore the less-touristy side of things at American University of Beirut and Pigeon Rocks in Raouche. Take a break from Beirut with a short trip to Jeita Grotto in Jitta, about 34 minutes away. The adventure continues: make a trip to The Corniche, explore the historical opulence of The Crusader Castle, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Beirut, and take a stroll through Hamra Street.

To find where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read Beirut online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airport is Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport. October in Beirut sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can drive to Tannourine.

Tannourine ©
The municipality of Tannourine--so named because of the area's resemblance to the convex shape of a tannoor oven--consists of a main village and a number of small settlements dotting the surrounding valleys and ravines.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bonita Bay and Horsh Ehden Nature Reserve. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tannourine: Bcharre (The Cedars of God & Qadisha (Kadisha) Valley), Batroun (Ixsir & Phoenician Wall) and Bnachii Lake (in Zgharta). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Tannourine Cedar Forest Nature Reserve, take in the spiritual surroundings of Deir Mar Elisha, and steep yourself in history at Hadchit.
