Paris of the East

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.
Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George and Beit Eddine will appeal to history buffs. Get outdoors at Pigeon Rocks in Raouche and Mzaar Kfardebian. Explore Beirut's surroundings by going to Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk) and Aammiq wetland (in Saghbine). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Beirut, pause for some serene contemplation at St. George Maronite Cathedral, and shop like a local with Beirut Souks.
