Continuously inhabited for at least 7,000 years, World Heritage-listed Byblos has genuine claims to the title of one of the oldest cities in the world.
We've included these beaches for you: White Beach and Bonita Bay. Do some cultural sightseeing at Byblos Castle and Old Souk. Take a break from Byblos with a short trip to The Cedars of God in Bcharre, about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saint Charbel Tomb, examine the collection at Memoire Du Temps, take an in-depth tour of Armenian Genocide Orphans' "Aram Bezikian" Museum, and get lost in a book at Modern and Contemporary Art Museum.

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.
You've now added Zingy Ride to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Temples of Baalbek and Hamra Street. Your inner history buff will appreciate Our Lady of Lebanon and Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George. Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Chir Bay (in Jiyeh) and Tyre Beach (in Sur). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Beirut, take in the exciting artwork at Dar El-Nimer for Arts and Culture, stroll through LAZY B BEACH CLUB, and don't miss a visit to Corniche Beirut.
