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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Crusader Castle and Cathedrale St Elie des Grecs-Catholiques. Discover out-of-the-way places like ABC Mall and Beit Eddine. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Sur (Tyre Beach & Roman Hippodrome), Jeita Grotto (in Jitta) and Iris Beach Club Damour (in Damour). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Selim Mouzannar, take a stroll through Beirut Souks, admire all the interesting features of American University of Beirut, and make a trip to Hamra Street.
