Over the years, many have referred to Beirut by the moniker, "Paris of the Middle East." With its European inspired architecture and café culture, it is easy to see why. Place de l'Etoile was built by the French at the beginning of the 20th century and has recently undergone renovations since the war. This is the center of the downtown district and a great place to start your tour of the city.
Those interested in art and history will be pleased to find a variety of museums scattered throughout the city. The National Museum of Beirut is home to more than one-thousand artifacts and offers a glimpse into the region dating back to prehistoric times. The Sursock Museum is another must-see. The architecture alone is worth the visit, as it was built during the 18th century and was once a palace. Sursock features a vast collection of both Lebanese and international art.
Then, of course, there are the beaches. Naturally, due to its location, you can expect to find some of the best beaches in the world in Beirut, from quaint, sandy stretches to swanky beach clubs. Keep in shape with a leisurely jog along the shoreline, lay out on a comfortable chaise and soak up the sun, bask in the shade of a leafy palm, or experience the sunset from one of the locally operated yachts.
