You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Beit Eddine (in Beiteddine), Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa) and Byblos (Byblos Castle, Saint John-Marc Cathedral, &more). The adventure continues: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, take a stroll through Beirut Souks, and explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche.
