What you need to know before traveling to Lebanon

Lebanon is a mountainous country. The only exceptions are the coastal region and Beqaa Valley. This Middle Eastern country consists of 6 Governorates. They in turn, except for the Beirut Governorate, subdivide into 25 Districts. Lebanon is a place of social upheaval and historical marvels. The Phoenicians had their major city of Tyre, here. You can see it in the South Governorate. Make sure, you book a hotel in Lebanon with access to the Roman ruins, the u-shaped hippodrome (2nd century) and the ruins of a Crusader Cathedral. If you choose to stay in the capital city of Beirut, visit the elegant Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque. You should also wander the Souq at Tripoli or the Souq at Sidon (South Governorate). Here, too, is the Crusader’s Sea Castle (13th century). Vayama.com provides a list of possible hotels in Lebanon from which to choose. Perhaps you will prefer a Lebanon hotel close to the Roman ruins of Byblos in the Mount Lebanon Governorate.

At Chouf, there is the Beiteddine Palace begun construction in 1788. There are also caves at Jeita Grotto and the Museum at Baalbek. Baalbek in the Beqaa Governorate is the home of several Roman ruins. These include the Temple of Jupiter and the misnamed Temple of Bacchus. Wander the ruins and feel the country’s ancient roots. No visit to Lebanon is complete without seeing the Cedars of Lebanon. Head to Bacharré in the Qadisha Valley. These majestic trees of ancient lineage and great celebrity recall Biblical epics.
