This tour is an ideal combination of Lebanon’s cultural, archaeological and natural highlights. Accommodations are at the luxurious Four Seasons Beirut, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Begin in Beirut, one of the most exciting cities in 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.

Enjoy an excursion to the south of Lebanon to visit Sidon (Saida) and Tyre (Sour), important ancient Phoenician city-states that today are two of Lebanon’s largest cities. Stop for lunch at a seaside restaurant in Sidon and explore its excellent covered souks, the highlight of the modern city. Continue to Tyre, possibly best known as the birthplace of Dido, who was to become the first Queen of Carthage. Tyre has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its wealth of important archaeological remains, including one of the largest Roman hippodromes in the ancient world.

One day, drive through the beautiful Chouf Mountains, 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. Another day, if desired, 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.

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. Continue to the Jeita Grotto, a spectacular series of caverns containing one of the world’s most breathtaking groups of stalagmites and stalactites. Marvel at the vast size of the caves, which stretch almost four miles back into the mountains.
