Lovely square. Great history. Eerily quiet, with few people around. Felt safe though - lots of security around

Great for getting some pictures around the down town clock and seeing the Lebanese parliament as well. This place will show you the traditional architecture of the buildings in Beirut that have been renovated. You may want to spend around an hour or so in this place and then head down to Beirut Souks or Zaitunay Bay or martyrs square-all... More

I like this place, because it's quiet and perfect for a little walk and some coffee. I found it a little strange, that there are so less people around. The whole area is for pedestrians only and a save place for little kids, bringing their bikes, skaters or just to let them running around.

Downtown Beirut centred around Place de l'Etoile has been completely rebuild after 1990. They also did a beautiful job at doing so as this area will really give you a feel of what Beirut has looked like during its heydays. But the downtown area and Place de l'Etoile lacks in charm and people. The place feels like a ghost town.... More

Due to the presence of Parliament all roads are closed for cars to reach the place de l'etoile. Nice walk, some nice restaurants all around.
