Tyre, sometimes romanized as Sour, is a city in the South Governorate of Lebanon. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sur: Mleeta Landmark (in Iqlim al Tuffah), Our Lady of Mantara (in Maghdoucheh) and Beaufort Castle (in Arnoun). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Tyre Beach, delve into the distant past at Tyre Hippodrome, Head underground at Kfarhim Grotto, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Grotte de Cana.

Plan my trip to Sur with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Beirut to Sur is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. In June, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. On the 3rd (Fri), you're off to Tripoli.
