Beirut, the capital and largest city of Lebanon and It is located on the Mediterranean coast at the foot of the Lebanon Mountain.
Beirut is a city of baffling contradictions whose character blends the sophisticated and cosmopolitan with the provincial and parochial. Fast-paced, fashion-conscious and overwhelmingly friendly, it’s not a relaxing city to spend time in, it’s too crowded, but its energy, soul, diversity and intoxicating atmosphere make it a vital, addictive city. A couple of excellent museums are the key sights, but exploring the character of the different districts, strolling the waterfront and diving into the city’s wonderful restaurant and nightlife scene are major attractions. As Lebanon is so small, and day trips easy, some travelers base themselves here for their entire visit.
