The one thing you need to see in Lebanon? The Temples of Baalbek! A temple to Venus, a temple to Jupiter and the utterly superb temple to Bacchus. You can spend hours here and still not see all of it in enough detail. The temples are absolutely spectacular! Bring water and a hat if you're here in summer as it's... More

The temples of Baalbek are truly a site to behold, from the second you step close you gain a real perspective of just how grand and how much effort has gone into creating such a series of monuments. Couple with this the technology of the time and it truly creates an awe inspiring impression. The ruins have been painstakingly restored... More

The Baalbek complex is located about 85km and 90 minutes outside of Beirut, with the trip through the Bekaa Valley providing a nice diversion from the cosmopolitan vibe of my home base. Although the history of the area can be traced back to the Phoenicians (a common metaphorical birth place for many archeological digs in the country), the main calling... More

Nothing really can describe this astounding historical site. Nearby too there is the largest cut stone in the world that was originally earmarked for the site. Baalbek is just incredible.

Simply sensational ruins a day trip away from Beirut that really deserves far more visitors! Completely safe and great guides too. Ignore all the people saying it is not safe!

This is one of the most well-preserved, beautiful and stunning Roman Archeological site in Middle East. It is a jewel. Balbeck is a place which is well worth visiting. Go there and enjoy it.

I recommend to go early. You will take some awesome pictures when there is nobody around. It is a must see in Lebanon. Definitely worth the trip.

The temple is really beautiful. Used to be an important site in Phoenicians, Greeks, Roman, Christians and Muslems periods. You can feel the glory of the Roman empire when you are in the temple. Building such a great place is remarkable even nowadays let alone thousands of years ago with old facilities.

Last October I was here and this is one of the best attractions in Lebanon. Plenty of history, huge structures and a great guide made this trip worth it. Book a tour because the guides are well informed and you get to connect with other tourists as well.

Baalbek is a bit off the beaten path in Lebanon, but I found the trip very worthwhile. The pillars are very high.
