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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Place de l'Etoile, St Nicholas Stairs, The Great Mosque, and other attractions. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temples of Baalbek and The Cedars of God. Appreciate the collections at National Museum of Beirut and Soap Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Beirut: Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar (in Anjar), Baalbek Roman Ruins (in Baalbeck) and Bcharre (Deir Mar Elisha, Deir Qozhaya, & more). There's lots more to do: Head underground at Jeita Grotto, take a stroll through Beirut Souks, explore the historical opulence of Palace of Beiteddine, and make a trip to The Great al-Omari Mosque.

To see where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read Beirut sightseeing planning tool .

If you are flying in from Tunisia, the closest major airport is Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
