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.
Explore Beirut's surroundings by going to Byblos (Monastery of St. Maron Annaya, Saint Charbel Tomb, &more), Beit Eddine (in Beiteddine) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind Jeita Grotto, make a trip to Gemmayzeh Street, examine the collection at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, and gain insight at American University of Beirut.

For photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Beirut tour planning app.
