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.
Explore hidden gems such as Chateau Ksara and Mim Museum - Mineral Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Beirut: Our Lady of Zahle and Bekaa (in Zahle), Saint Charbel Tomb (in Byblos) and Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar (in Anjar). And it doesn't end there: explore the fascinating underground world of Jeita Grotto, don't miss a visit to Sidon Souks, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Beirut, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hamra Street.

To see where to stay, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, read our Beirut itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Beirut are 23°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
