Things to do

Beirut was named top place to visit by The New York Times in 2009 and one of the 10 liveliest cities in the world by Lonely Planet in that same year. Beirut's culture has evolved under the influence of many different civilisations, namely the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Ottoman Turks, and French. The country has always welcomed visitors from all over the world and caters to them with the best food, culture and entertainment.
