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 (Memoire Du Temps & Byblos Castle) and Our Lady of Lebanon (in Harissa). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind Jeita Grotto, make a trip to Corniche Beirut, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, and wander the streets of Beirut Souks.

Maastricht, The Netherlands to Beirut is an approximately 14.5- hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Maastricht to Beirut. Traveling from Maastricht in March, expect Beirut to be a bit warmer, temps between 25°C and 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Zahle.
