Discover - Lebanon

Lebanon is famous for its exquisite beauty, diversity, glamour, European flavour, and hospitable people. Its rich culture and history have placed it on the “must see” list of every world traveller. Lebanese cities are among the most famous names in ancient history and majestic ruins still stand today as a testimony to the greatness of people who lived in this land.

 

The nature of Lebanon makes it the only country in the Arab world that embraces four seasons yearly. No matter what the season, there is always something special to enjoy. In the winter season, ski resorts offer tourists slopes that are comparable to even the best resorts in Europe. In the summer, international festivals all over the country – in Baalbek, Byblos, Beiteddine, Batroun, and Jounieh – bring together Lebanese and foreign artists to perform in stunning archaeological and historical sites. These events have given Lebanon an enviable place on the cultural map of the Middle East.

Highlights

From the warm Mediterranean coast to the snow-covered mountains, winter (December-March) presents visitors to Lebanon with a host of contrasts. Winter along the coast is a mild affair, characterized by warm days and cool evenings, with temperatures ranging from 10-20°C. As such, it is a wonderful time to visit the many historical and cultural attractions along the coast, including the ancient cities of Jbeil (Byblos), Saida (Sidon), and Sour (Tyre). Not only will you avoid the crowds, but you may actually find yourself as the solitary visitor to these ancient ruins.

 
Springtime (April-May) is one of the most pleasant times to visit Lebanon. The near-perfect weather, 0-15°C in the mountains and 15-25°C along the coast, makes it a great time to discover Lebanon while soaking up the beauty of a Mediterranean spring. In the Summer and the Autumn, take leisurely explore the country’s numerous archaeological sites and historic monuments. Go on a hike in the Cedars forest or one of the nature reserves. Take a gastronomical tour of Lebanon, sampling regional specialities at the great restaurants scattered throughout the country.
