About 50 min from Beirut, through a very beautiful clean road surrounded by trees, you reach Beit el Dine. Follow the signs and it s very easy to reach it. Before going there, I advise to visit the Palace of Moussa which is a very rich museum of the Lebanese history. Beit el Dine is a very big Palace, about... More

A trip from Beirut into the Chouff mountains with a taxi or hotel driver is a must, but you'll be well rewarded at Beit Eddine With palace rooms and gardens open and displaying mosaics, sculptures and artefacts with outstanding views across the hills and back down valleys of the historic Chouff. Don't miss it.

When deciding to go and view a historical place, it is rather difficult. The expectations are high, and disappointment can ruin the trip. On this one I am neutral. The furnishing and workmanship of the original craftsmanship are pretty good. The one thing that ruined it for me was those horrible split AC unit protruding from the walls in one... More

not a must-see, but you'll enjoy the visit. It's sad that the walls, instead of restoring it, were painted... Looks clean though but lost a lot of the original antiquity

This is truly a must when you visit Beirut. This place is amazing. It is so huge and so well maintained. My understanding is there parties and events still taking place here. It is one room after another of amazing and beautiful furniture and history. It is so well maintained you can almost close your eyes and visualize yourself being... More

The drive there was simply fantastic and the view spectacular. In general i fell in love with Lebanon and one of the contributing factors to this is because of Beit Eddine.

Not so impressive. Nothing to write home about and if I was given an all expense paid trip back to visit this place I will not have to think twice before rejecting the offer.

It's always great to see a historical place like this still being used today. When we visited they were setting up a stage for a concert later on. The palace itself is full of interesting places to explore, although it doesn't quite live up to it's "Alhambra of Lebanon" tag.
