AUB's campus is a must see for any Beirut visitor. It's location in the core of Beirut, connecting the sea shore to the Hamra district makes it easily accessible and close to so many other touristy sites.

If you want to see what made the Old Beirut so special, step back in time by taking a stroll through the campus. The leafy gardens and beautiful buildings hark back to a different time in Beirut. The escape from the noise of Beirut is also quite welcome.

Beautiful campus. Small but lovely. Need your ID to get a pass to tour the campus. My favorite place is the Starbucks at the new business school facing the Mediterranean :)
