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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Beirut Souks and National Museum of Beirut. Step out of the city life by going to Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve and Pigeon Rocks in Raouche. Take a break from Beirut with a short trip to Horsh Ehden Nature Reserve in Ehden, about 1h 45 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the fascinating underground world of Jeita Grotto, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, look for gifts at Selim Mouzannar, and shop like a local with Hamra Street.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Beirut road trip planning app .

Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Yerevan: Khor Virap (in Lusarat), Garni Temple (in Garni) and Hayravank Monastery (in Hayravank). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Monastery of Geghard, take in nature's colorful creations at Yerevan Botanical Garden, don't miss a visit to Yerevan Cascade, and explore the world behind art at Cafesjian Center for the Arts.
