    Byblos (Jbeil)

    by MM212 Updated Feb 1, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A pretty Mediterranean resort town 30 minutes north of Beirut, Byblos, or Jbail in Arabic, sits atop 7000 years of history. It claims to be the longest continuously inhabited settlement in the world, and its archeological site is the living proof with traces of nearly every passing civilisation or conqueror, from Phoenicians to the French, passing by Romans and Ottomans, among others. Beyond archaeology, Byblos itself is a charming town with a preserved mediaeval character consisting of stone architecture, red-tiled roofs and arched passageways, all within sight of Roman columns and Byzantine mosaics. The ancient harbour is perfect for an afternoon stroll and a drink or a meal at one of its outdoor seafood restaurants, and you may come across photographic reminders of the glamorous years of the 1960s, when celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Brigitte Bardot and Marlon Brando are known to have visited Byblos.

    Beit Meri

    Only 4 km down the road from Brummana is another picturesque hilltop town called Beit Meri. Although also considered a summer retreat, Beit Meri is a little less popular with weekend traffic and therefore lacks the restaurants, nightlife and hotels of Brummana. However, it does have a small archaeological area with Roman and Byzantine ruins, as well as a 17th century Maronite Christian monastery built on the ruins of a once impressive Roman temple dedicated to the Phoenician god Marqod. The town also has incredible direct views over the city of Beirut and the Mediterranean.

    A charming hilltop town surrounded by pine forests, Brummana commands excellent views over the Lebanese mountains and the Mediterranean. It is a majority Maronite Christian town dotted with numerous churches. Its proximity to Beirut (only 20 minutes by car) and its cooler climate (at 900 metres above sea level) has made it a popular summer resort for Beirutis. It is thus also filled with hotels, renowned restaurants, and some fun nightlife too. A day trip from Beirut and lunch, or a whole weekend in Brummana, definitely makes a great getaway from the city.
