Spend the day in Beirut, exploring old Lebanese architecture, stunning gardens and palace grounds, and enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding valley.
Start out at Deir Al Qamar, a unique Lebanese town restored and maintained in centuries-old style, preserving feudal architecture, old stepped streets, and walled gardens.
Afterward, head to the Beiteddine palace complex, Lebanon's best example of 19th century architecture. Built by Prince Bashir, the palace is now used as a summer retreat for the president of the Lebanese Republic, and as a backdrop for many movie sets. Explore the golden walls, suspended gardens, and courtyard fountains, then enjoy a spectacular view of the complex from the village of Deir Al Qamar.
