Beirut

Beirut ©
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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Mim Museum - Mineral Museum and Food Tours. Escape the urban bustle at Shouf Cedars Reserve and Ain Wazein Grotto. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: St. Stephan's Cathedral (in Batroun), Crusaders Sea Castle (in Sidon) and Byblos (Monastery of St. Maron Annaya, Saint Charbel Tomb, &more). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve, take in the spiritual surroundings of Churches of Harissa, don't miss a visit to Rouche Sea Rock, and explore the ancient world of Al-Omari Mosque.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Beirut trip builder.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Beirut. In June in Beirut, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can drive to Sur.
