For a small country, Lebanon has an amazingly long and rich history. Full of ancient ruins and friendly people, this Mediterranean nation lies at the crossroads of Arabia and the West, adding incredible cultural depth to enviable mountain and coastal landscapes. In the Middle East, Lebanon is known for its undeniably resilient spirit and much-loved local cuisine. Hotels in Lebanon will immerse you in this intriguing age-old society for the journey of a lifetime.
From the Mediterranean to the mountains, Lebanon's scenery is as varied as its landscape. The country's capital of Beirut lies in the center of its coast, and Lebanon hotels here will make a great home base for exploring the coast and interior. Just uphill from Beirut is the alluring city of Aley, home to the world's largest Druze population. Lebanon's indisputable mountain capital, this often-foggy city is a top tourist attraction and home to some of the best hotels in Lebanon. Hotels in Aley grant access to an outdoor lover's natural paradise, where sports like skiing, hiking, and mountain climbing abound. Those interested in Lebanon's history should head to Tyre in the south, which features a number of ancient sites, including a Roman Hippodrome. Meanwhile, Baalbek in the east, closer to Syria, boasts an incomparable archaeological site that includes the largest temple in the Roman Empire. Head north to enjoy Tripoli, Lebanon's "second capital," which encompasses a fantastic Old Town and is close to excellent offshore ecological reserves.
