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.
Visiting Iris Beach Club Damour and Jeita Grotto will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at National Museum of Beirut and Beirut Souks. Take a break from Beirut with a short trip to Beit Eddine in Beiteddine, about 52 minutes away. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Hamra Street, enjoy some music at The Crusader Castle, stop by Selim Mouzannar, and take in the dramatic natural features at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche.

To see more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Beirut itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airport is Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) to allow enough time to 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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bonita Bay and Horsh Ehden Nature Reserve. Get some historical perspective at Temples of Baalbek and Qadisha (Kadisha) Valley. Get out of town with these interesting Tannourine side-trips: Batroun (Phoenician Wall, Ixsir, & more), Chateau Ksara (in Zahle), The Cedars of God (in Bcharre) and Jisr el Hajar - Kfardebian Natural Bridge (in Kfardebian). There's more to do: take a peaceful walk through Tannourine Cedar Forest Nature Reserve and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Deir Mar Elisha.
