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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Nicolas Sursock Museum and Mim Museum - Mineral Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Churches of Harissa and Fakhreddine's Mosque. Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk), Beit Eddine (in Beiteddine) and White Beach (in Thoum). There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at ABC Mall, identify plant and animal life at Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve, see the interesting displays at Banque Du Liban Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. George Maronite Cathedral.
