Photo essay: Lebanon’s ancient ruins, evoking memories from past lives
There are places that make you feel tiny and huge at the same time. Lebanon is one of those. Walking around, driving up and down the country, from Sur (Tyre) up to Baalbek, comfortably perched on a hill in the heart of the Bekaa Valley, tourists will never cease to be in awe gaping at the fabulous vestiges this tiny country boasts.
Many layers of majestic remains left by different civilizations shimmer seductively all around the country in its archaeological sites. From the Phoenicians to the Greeks, to the Romans, Lebanon, a little like Sardinia, was invaded by everybody, and certainly, its ruins, embellished by my friends’ running commentary, played a great role on the memories I have from this trip.
With so many things to do and places to visit, you should plan at least a week in Lebanon. Check out these Lebanon itinerary suggestions to help you plan a perfect trip.
