Often cited as the best preserved and largest Roman site, Baalbek is the top tourist attraction in Lebanon. Too bad the city around the temples is in rather bad shape, but hospitality remains good.

Lebanon is - sadly - the Med's greatest undiscovered destination, something that will never change with IS lunatics all over the region. Within this beautiful land, Baalbeck is the jewel. I have been lucky enough to see Petra, Egypt, Libya, Greece etc but this is simply on another scale; the classic combination of beauty and strength. It overawes anything you... More

The temples of Baalbek are truly impressive. When we arrived I was simply overwhelmed by their sheer size. The temples are very interesting to visit because they are not only well preserved but also because they display different styles and epochs all in one compound. There's a little museum displaying some artefacts they found at the site, which is rather... More

We visited in June traveling up from Beirut in our own hire car and had a completely uneventful trip in relation to security. Having spoken to many people in Beirut who had advised against going due to the perception of danger due to ISIS and the proximity of the Syrian boarder we had only intended of visiting the vineyard in...

Baalbek ruins (Heliopolis) ------------------- I think these are a must-see in lebanon. It is about 87Km northeast of Beirut, about 2 hours by car. A Phoenician city, which was built with 3 temples according to their old gods, which were later on taken over by Romans, who built over it large temples for Jupiter (the king of the gods), Venus...

Wonderful site. Went with organised tour from Beirut. Not many visitors due to the unfounded perception that Lebanon is dangerous. I thought it was a very safe and civilised place.

No visit to Lebanon is complete without a visit to this ancient ruin. The world bodies have not pumped in enough money to maintain this place well, but is worth a day's visit after you read up all about it on Wikipedia. Although tourist buses travel from Beirut, I was short on time and paid USD 150 roundtrip by taxi.... More

It should be one of the wonders of the world. Beautiful and lots of history. Do not go after this review, May 2015. War between the Lebanese Army and non Lebanese militant at the border.
