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.
Beirut Souks and Byblos Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Beit Eddine in Beiteddine (about 52 minutes away). There's lots more to do: stop by Hamra Street, make a trip to Zaitunay Bay, see the interesting displays at Banque Du Liban Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Iris Beach Club Damour.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read our Beirut trip itinerary maker tool.

Amman, Jordan to Beirut is an approximately 4.5- hour combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Amman in October, plan for a bit warmer nights in Beirut, with lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) early enough to go by car 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.
Popular historic sites such as Temples of Baalbek and The Cedars of God are in your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Qadisha Valley and Mzaar Kfardebian. Venture out of the city with trips to Zahle (Chateau Ksara & Our Lady of Zahle and Bekaa), Batroun (Bonita Bay & Mussaylha Fort) and Bcharre (Deir Qozhaya & Gibran Museum). It doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Tannourine Cedar Forest Nature Reserve and learn about winemaking at Ixsir.

To see reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Tannourine tour itinerary planner.

You can drive from Beirut to Tannourine in 1.5 hours. In November, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
