It has created a space of historically significant buildings and streets, with pleasant amenities, lively cafes and mostly high-end retail, that is unmatched anywhere in the region, or... More

When you walk in the cafe area of Solidere next to the clock roundabout its very nice and romantic for all those love birds. I liked the arghileh at Cafe Place de l'Etoile. In the evening you can see the stars and its just a nice romantic area

Nice place to visit. It used to be a much nicer location before the war, right now it is beautiful but does not have any soul. You should visit the churches and mosques and the beautiful shops.
