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 find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa), LazerGate (in Kfar Hazir) and Byblos (Old Souk, Byblos Castle, &more). There's lots more to do: pause for some photo ops at Jeita Grotto, explore the striking landscape at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Beirut trip itinerary maker.
