(8 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Paris, Beirut, Byblos, Baalbek

Paris, one of Europe's most rewarding cities, is a great gateway to Lebanon. Enjoy private city touring and explore the city at your own pace. First-time visitors to Paris may wish to visit major attractions such as Notre-Dame, St-Chapelle, the Eiffel Tower, the Luxembourg and Tuileries Gardens, and major museums such as the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. Other possibilities include an epicurean tour of specialty chocolate shops, fromagerie, copperware stores and tea sellers; walking tours through the exclusive residential streets on Ile St-Louis, the old Jewish quarter in the Marais, the former art colony of Montmartre, the medieval streets of the Latin Quarter, or to Left Bank cafes made famous by poets and philosophers; and shopping for antiques in flea markets or haute couture in fashionable boutiques.

Next, fly to Beirut, one of the most vibrant cities on the Mediterranean and often referred to as “the Paris of the Middle East.” Although it’s been damaged and rebuilt several times Beirut remains a highly sophisticated city, with excellent restaurants, nightlife and cultural pursuits. During flexible private touring with your expert guide, explore the most interesting neighborhoods, museums and monuments and learn the varied, complex history of this fascinating city. See the newly refurbished Downtown, an area full of Roman ruins, Art Deco buildings, galleries, shops, churches, mosques and a synagogue. Explore other neighborhoods renowned for their contemporary art galleries, upscale boutiques and restaurants, varied architecture and gorgeous old mansions. Also visit some of Beirut’s superb museums, such as the National Museum with its impressive collection of archaeological artifacts; the Cilicia Museum, a fascinating collection of Armenian cultural and religious items; or the Robert Mouawad Museum, a truly stunning private collection of objets d’art housed in a beautiful mansion.

Also visit Byblos, a delightful Mediterranean town to the north of Beirut. In its halcyon days in the ’60s, Byblos was a hub for the international jet set who would arrive in their private yachts; these days, it’s a popular place for chic Beirutis to spend a fun evening or weekend. Stroll the lovely bougainvillea-lined streets, explore the shops and cafes in the souk, visit the interesting Roman ruins and perhaps enjoy a delicious seafood meal at one of the restaurants fronting Byblos’s very picturesque harbor.

One day, enjoy an excursion to the beautiful Bekaa Valley to see the Roman ruins of Baalbek, the most important archaeological site in Lebanon and a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site. On route back to your hotel, stop at the Chateau Ksara, Lebanon’s oldest and best-known winery, for a tasting of some of its esteemed red and white wines, if desired. Another day, drive through the beautiful Chouf Mountains en route to your hotel, passing a number of charming Druze villages and cedar forests. Stop to explore the spectacular Beiteddine Palace, an early 19th-century palace built high on a mountain overlooking a lovely valley, and filled with gorgeous furnishings, stained glass windows, intricately carved wood walls and ceilings, and Byzantine mosaics.
