  • An important ruins site in Lebanon that deserve at 2 hours, or more, of your time in Lebanon to been visited. You'll find shops, restaurants, bars and clubs all around the site, some restaurants are really nice (on the port)...
  • Cool visit. Worth the day trip from Beirut. Lots of nice lunch places nearby either at the marina or in the Souk area.
