The most incredible Roman ruins we have ever visited, amazingly well preserved and such an atmospheric site. We had been a bit anxious about visiting Baalbek due to advice on the FCO travel website suggesting it was best not to go, but the whole town...More

I would allow 90 minutes - two hours to visit the temples. The Temple of Bacchus is amazing as it is the most in tact of the temples. We hired a guide on site which I would recommend.

Site is not only a must see for history buffs but all of us to appreciate the level of civilization our ancestors had reached nearly 2000 years ago. The temple of Bacchus is very well preserved with clear stone relief work to appreciate

If there is one ruin that you visit in Lebanon- let this be it. We visited this fantastic monument as part of a Day tour by Nakhel Tours from Beirut. We would suggest that this magnificent Roman architecture be visited with a guide - alternately...More

It's a must visit when you're in Lebanon. Incredible structures. Definitely worth having a guide - there are so many details involved. About 2 hours will do it.

Salaam, All! I'm trying to decide if I ought to include the Temples of Baalbek ruins in my Lebanon itinerary despite having visited a good number of ancient ruins scattered across the Mediterranean and North America in the last three years. I'm hoping some of the experienced travellers here can opine? Here are the details: I'll be in Lebanon next month, and will have time in my itinerary to visit the capital, the coastal cities from Tripoli in the north to Tyre in the south, as well as an extra day to saunter out east to visit Baalbek. However, in the last three years or so, I've visited a good number of ruin sites, and really want to diversify my travel experiences. If the legendary Temple of Baalbek site is simply another ruin site to check off a list, then perhaps it is not for me. That said, I'm well aware that every ruin site is different and it is therefore possible to have visited a good number in the recent past and still extract value and enjoyment from yet another. Would this be so in my case with a visit to Baalbek? My past three-year ruins itinerary includes some of the ancient Roman cities of Northern Algeria; some sites in Northern and Central Tunisia; a few Mayan pyramids and temples in Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico; along with the usual suspects in Rome and around. Keen to learn your thoughts on this, and thanks in advance to all those who take the time to respond. :-)

I don't think you should drive yourself in Lebanon. To go to Baalbek you have to cross several checkpoints. I felt that the situation was very unstable there. We used a great driver who is also a guide. Adel Nayfeh his... More
