  • The Byblos Museum is actually an archaeological site that is still being discovered, revealing the ancient Castle, amphitheater and other buildings from various times of Lebanon's story. Situated by the sea, the view is beautiful.

  • Place to visit. Byblos is one of my favorite cities. A kind of small-scale seaside resort, it offers tours of ancient sites such as the Byblos Citadel, the old souk and the harbour. Place where mosque and church rub shoulders with respect for everyone. On the program visit in the morning, private pool in the afternoon and walk and dinner at the old souk where you can buy a bunch of souvenirs.

  • This place was great, climbing through the ancient ruins gives you a sense of what live was like 1000s of years ago. The architecture, building style and construction is amazing
  • This place is very nice and the view from the top is amusing. I recommend this place for tourists.
