Tailor-made Holidays in Lebanon by Cox & Kings

Things to do in Lebanon range from visiting the glamorous capital to discovering historic ruins, enjoying delectable cuisine and exploring pretty fishing villages.

Beirut, a city with a venerable past, has a sense of life and energy that is immediately apparent to visitors. Many of the city’s beautiful old buildings are being restored to their former glory and, where Roman columns and other artefacts have been discovered, new excavations have begun. Beirut has some interesting museums, including the National Museum and the Archaeological Museum of the American University.

Lebanon’s real showpiece, and one of the Middle East’s most impressive archaeological highlights, are the spectacular ruins at Baalbek. The site isn’t as large as Palmyra in Syria, or Jerash in Jordan, but the ruins are far more intact and there are generally very few visitors. The temple of Bacchus is larger than the Parthenon and the six remaining columns of the Temple of Jupiter are the tallest in the world.

On a tailor-made itinerary to Lebanon you can venture to the north of the country to visit the Qadisha valley, where you will find 17th-century monasteries carved into the side of the rock face. Pass mountainside towns and explore the many ancient remains in Byblos, Tyre, Baalbek, and Anjar.
