A wonderful Roman settlement, absolutely world class and not to be missed. Baalbek is a fairly compact site compared to many, but with many surviving details and decorative elements allow at least a coupke of hours to visit the site. The sheer size of the columns is astounding, and on a par with the Baths of Diocletian in Rome, The... More

The temple of Jupiter with the longest freestanding columns - you feel yourself surrounded by history. Temple of Bacchus worth to be visited. Find a guide to explain (some speak English or French in addition to their native Arabic) and also visit the museum. Don't miss the mosaics. Entrance fee has to be paid

Their guides are good! Ensure you have one to explain everything, it is really needed as there is no explanation otherwise.

The temples of Baalbeck, are probably one of the world's forgotten and lost treasures!!! Here one finds history that spans from the phoenicians through the Romans and the Arabs. One of the wonders in Baalbeck is how did the Romans manage to bring the stones from Egypt to here and how they erected such columns. It is an engineering marve!!!... More
