This palace is so colorful and fun to see. It has lots of water fountains, There is a gentleman that will explain all the room in the palace. The bath tubs are interesting to say the least.

We had about an hour to walk through this palace and it was really great! The detail involved in all the decor is incredible! The pictures really don't do its justice. I would definitely recommend anyone to go here when they go to Lebanon.

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
