Itinerary

Included Meals: No Meals Included

Welcome to Beirut! As soon as your visa formalities are finished, meet your guide and fellow travel mates. Proceed to a city tour. Be enchanted by the capital of modern Lebanon, the country’s cultural and commercial center. See the city’s top attractions while discovering how Beirut was built on a rocky headland, and has risen and fallen over the centuries. See the Martyrs’ Statue, the Nejmeh Square in downtown Beirut and the Beirut National Museum. You will start with the National Museum and on your way you will have a picture stop at the Pigeon Rocks, the most famous arched rock formations along the coast of Beirut. Lebanon is home to many cultures and at the National Museum you will find the remains of these cultures, each with a story to tell. Next, you will go to the trendy Downtown area where you will visit Al Amin Mosque and historical churches in addition to the Roman Baths ruins. Then you will go the restored souks area where you can find all the brands for shopping and some small cafés to have an afternoon coffee. After, transfer to hotel for check in. Overnight in Beirut.

Included Meals: Breakfast

Say good morning to Lebanon over breakfast at your hotel. Today, you have a free day to explore Beirut on your own or go on an Optional Tour of Jeita - Harissa - Byblos Tour. You will start by visiting the Dog River where you can see the inscriptions left by armies throughout the ages; from the cuneiform inscription of Nebuchadnezzar II to the Latin inscription of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius Antonius to the British-led Desert Mountain Corps. You will continue to visit Jeita, the magnificent limestone cave in Lebanon. It is the largest cave in Lebanon. First discovered in 1836, the cave serves as the source of the river Nahr El Kalb. Afterwards, you will continue your trip to Jounieh, a bustling city with modern buildings and active night life almost stealing the show from Beirut. From there you will take a cable car to go to Harissa. Harissa is the seat of the Papal Nuncio in Lebanon and it is the most important site for religious pilgrims in Lebanon. Harissa is most famous for its large statue of the Virgin Mary, opened in 1908. There are about 20 churches and monasteries of several denominations in the area. Then you will then go to Byblos, a mix of sophistication and tradition. Byblos is a contender for the title of oldest continuously inhabited city. Next, you will visit the castle and then you can take a walk through the medieval quarter of the city and explore the old souks (markets), the medieval ramparts, and several beautiful old churches. Overnight in Beirut.

Included Meals: Breakfast

Good morning Beirut. Have a hearty breakfast at your hotel. After this you are free to continue exploration of the city on your own or go on an Optional Tour with lunch included. You will start with Baalbek, which is also known as the City of the Sun. It is located in the Beqaa Valley (3000 ft above sea level) and holds some of the world’s greatest historical and best preserved Roman sites. Its remains include a gigantic complex of Roman temples with the tallest columns ever erected. The Roman gods were worshipped in its Acropolis (constructed between 1st –3rd Century AD). In Jupiter Temple, only six columns remain out of the 54 giant columns that originally surrounded the sanctuary. The temple was built over a Phoenician podium dating from around 3000 BC. The city of Baalbek has major remains from Islamic times including the Grand Mosque built by Omayyad Caliphs, with material borrowed from ancient monuments, and Mameluk Mosque. Than you will continue to Anjar located in the Bekaa valley, 58 km from Beirut. It was built by the Omayyad caliph al-Walid Ibn Abdel Malek in the early 8th century A.D. Inside the city’s strong fortifications are the remains of streets, three palaces, souks, two hammams and a Mosque. Located on the old route linking the Bekaa with Damascus, Anjar was built in the neighborhood of an ancient stronghold called Gerrah. Today the name of Gerrah is retained in the word Anjar which means source of Gerrah (Ain Gerrah). At the end you will have a tour of Ksara Winery where you will visit the caves and have a wine tasting. Overnight in Beirut.
