Day Trips & Excursions
From historical palaces to natural reserves, each day trip is carefully designed by the Concierge team, introducing you to the different faces of Lebanon. All sightseeing tours can be arranged with a Hotel Limousine service as well as a professional guide.
Deir Al-Amar & Beiteddine
Within 45 minutes from Beirut, the town of Deir El Qamar is a living museum, with its unusual winding and narrow streets that lead out to dramatic palaces and buildings – reflecting an old world architectural style. Take a trip back in time as you visit the palace of Emir Fakhreddine II home to the Marie Baz Wax Museum. On your way to Beiteddine Palace, discover Moussa Castle and the story of how a young boy's childhood imagination came to life.
Admire the beautiful greenery and breathtaking views before arriving to the oldest and most elegant cedar forest in Lebanon, the "Cedrus Libani" at the Shouf Biosphere Reserve, the largest natural cedar reserve in the country.
Jeita Grotto, Byblos, Harissa
Magical and timeless describes Jeita Grotto with its two magnificent limestone grottos, selected as a finalist in the New Seven Wonders of Nature. With a fishing port with an ancient harbour, a medieval town centre with an old souk and a Crusader-era castle with an atmospheric archaeological site built, Byblos is a picturesque seaside town.
Rising high in one of the most beautiful hills in Lebanon, Harissa is also known as Our Lady Of Lebanon – a sanctuary for countless pilgrims who come to pay tribute to the immense and immaculate Statue of the Virgin Mary. The cable car ride to reach the religious site will allow you to admire the beautiful greenery on the way.
Baalbeck, Ksara, Anjar
Northeast of Beirut, explore the Baalbek Heliopolis, Lebanon's greatest Roman treasure and one of the world's best-preserved Roman sites. Just an hour away, walk through the beautifully preserved city of Anjar and visit the Ummayad ruins dating back to 705 AD. Finally, head to the Bekaa Valley, where thousands of wine bottles are produced. Walk through the vineyards and the caves and learn about the various processes involved in wine production before savouring a tasting of exquisite local wines.
Sidon & Tyre
An enjoyable ride along the southern coast of Lebanon will take you to Sidon, the largest and most mysterious city in the South of Lebanon. Visit the Sea Castle, a crusader's castle of the 13th century followed by a walk through the old souk not far away, to admire the local culture. Experience the art of producing traditional olive oil soaps at the Sidon Soap Museum, an old soap factory built in the 17th century. Further down the southern coast is Tyre, an island city of unprecedented splendor where you can visit the Necropolis excavations, the Monumental Arch and the spectacular hippodrome, the second largest and best preserved of the Roman era.
