Baalbek the ruins of several empires that got established using the same location, with amazing columns, some finished by fenicians, others Greeks and some romans . Took more than 300 years to build. It's decently preserved and worth to visit.

The ruins at Baalbeck are very well preserved, and because this is Lebanon you have a lot more freedom to explore. You can climb on almost anything to get great views of the countryside. There also aren't massive crowds of tourists bringing down the enjoyment...More

Finally I was able to visit the Roman ruins at Baalbek - the "City of the Sun". One of the most impressive sites in Lebanon and perhaps even in the the Middle East. Although I have never visited Palmyra. Apparently it was originally a Phoenician...More

Baalbek can be compared to Petra, Jordan; Luxor, Egypt; Beit Shean, Israel and others as among the very best of the ancient Middle East. Don't miss it and stay overnight at the historic PALMYRA HOTEL overlooking the ruins.

The Temples are simply huge and stunning. Breath taking and very much the highlight of a 4 day trop to Beirut and Lebanon. It is quite a drive from Beirut to get there and you are into an area that can be very dangerous. If...More

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...More

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
