Day Trips, Beirut Overview

Take the servees taxis or mini bus to Byblos and Baalbek, amidst the several other cities in Lebanon.

Recently selected as the Arab Tourism Capital for 2016, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Byblos sells itself as the first Phoenician city. However, Byblos is steeped in a lot more history having hosted Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Mamluks and Ottomans. Saunter around the Crusader citadel and adjacent archaeological site, soak in the diverse fumes of the Souks, have a bite in Feniqia or Adonis, and watch the sun set over the sea that carried Phoenician merchants all those millennia ago. If you are visiting in summer, donÍt miss the Byblos International Festival, which has been headlined by the likes of Massive Attack and B.B. King. The City of Sun, Baalbek is an ancient ruin site lending its glory since the Roman civilization. Yet another UNESCO World Heritage site, the ruins of the Roman temple stand as alluring for sheer grandeur and the Imperial Roman columns soaring to the sky. The Baalbek International festival in summer bring life to the monument.
