Traffic getting there from Beirut was terrible, but once we arrived, we were stunned by the sheer size of the complex and the number of ruins. A fraction of this anywhere else would be the star attraction for the town. Even though the Jupiter temple complex columns are being restored and are thus encased in scaffolding, the massive scale is... More

I visited these ruins in May, 2017. The drive from Beirut took about 2 hours. Once we arrived, we paid a $10 (i think) admission charge and hired a guide for $27 for a group of 9 people, they charge $20 for groups with fewer than 6 people. These ruins are huge! If they were in Italy, they would be... More

If you like Rome, you will love Baalbek! Because of the proximity to Syria and the volatile political situation that you read about all over european news, I had high doubts about going to Baalbek. Even the lebanese friends I was staying with in Beirut recommended not to go. So after asking around tourist informations and researching travel forums, I... More

The biggest and most beautiful historical site in Lebanon. Although it is a bit far from Beirut but the trip is worth it, you can also visit Zahle on your way back, lots of nice places and restaurants there.

The ruins are incredible and vast - well worth a visit. It's been pretty well restored and there's lots of signage, so we chose not to get a guide. Re safety - officially the FCO line is don't go to the Beqaa Valley - but we had no problems at all and there were no points I felt unsafe. Re... More

This is definitely a place not to be missed for those visiting lebanon! The temples are well preserved, the architecture is amazing, and the place has too much history in it. Guided tours are perfect! If you have time, try to stop by Anjar as well, also a great place to see in Bekaa.
