What To Expect
From Jeita, make your way to Byblos—one of the oldest cities on earth. Home to more than 24 successive civilizations, this 7,000-year-old city is among the top archeological areas in the nation. Follow your guide through some of the highlights, including the Byblos Castle, as you explore this ancient destination. Make a stop at the medieval Roman port, which ranks tops among the city’s tourist spots.
Enjoy a traditional Lebanese lunch (included) before making your way to Harissa, where you get an up-close look at the Statue of the Virgin Mary—including the chapel and spiral staircase—and have the opportunity to look out over impressive views of the Bay of Jounieh. Your guide explains how these religious sites are a destination for pilgrims from across the globe. Capture as many photos as you can at this religious destination before you settle back into the comfort of your private vehicle for the return trip to your Beirut hotel, where this incredible tour ends.
