Lebanon holidays by Cox & Kings

The small country of Lebanon offers a wide variety of things to see and do. From the impressive Roman ruins of Baalbek to the wines of the Bekaa Valley and the remnants of the country’s Phoenician, Persian, Arab and French-colonial past, there is much to explore. Large parts of the historical core of Beirut, Lebanon’s waterfront capital, has been reconstructed, and today it is arguably the most glamorous city in the Middle East. Elsewhere, drive past mountains covered in imposing cedar trees, wander through cathedral-like limestone caves full of stalactites and stalagmites, discover Crusader castles, visit internationally recognised wineries and spend time enjoying the Mediterranean coast.
