Stretch of steps
Aug 2019
It is a long stretch of steps.
One may not notice this if casually walking around this area.
We had this area on our list to see, but we didn't find it to be attractive.
It definitely felt like a huge walk up the stairs.
Not something we witness regularly in the city we are from.

take the walk to the Nicolas stairs, so you end up high, on the top of the stairs, so you can walk down. Nice for coffee and breakfast, but also on an evening. Plenty to see and different basr and restaurants.

Urban Stairway

Although this stairway can be a lovely diversion as you walk from the upper town to the lower town (Sursock Street to Gouraud Street), there's really nothing that special about them. On occasion, they do smell of urine.

not quite sure why this is seen as an attraction - functional yes, nice glimpses into older yards and architecture but no sea / city views

Just stairs

These are stairs. Who connect two streets. Can anybody tell me why they are in this list? Ugly dirty stairs, nothing special.

Nice place to visit in Beirut ...

Another MustSee Place in Beirut is St. Nicholas Stairs which is on Gemmayzeh Street. Especially you have to visit at night before or after your visit To Gemmayzeh for pubs, bars and cozy restaurants.

Interesting finds along the stairs
Apr 2019 • Friends
Friends and I walked down the stairs and had some fun photos taken. There are coffee shops, hostels along the way. All nicely decorated and inviting! Worth a visit if you have time. It should take less than an hour.

Lovely Neighborhood Spot
Dec 2018 • Couples
The St. Nicholas Stairs are the largest and most well-known of the many staircases that connect the Gemmayze and Mar Mikhael/Achrafieh neighborhoods to those uphill to the south. You can often find artists and street-sellers along the stairs, and you can find cafes and other treats in the nooks and crannies of the other staircases around. Definitely cover the St. Nicholas Stairs, but keep going east on Gouraud/Armenia to find the others as well.
