Just unbelievable. Roman, Crusader, Byzantine and many more ruins. Unfortunately no guides at all. Ask the guy selling tickets (Arabic only) to give you a glimpse of the history of that site. A museum was built but will not open before next year. As the site is vast try not to go during midday (no shade) and use a pair... More

It's hard to wrap your head around the history you're seeing. An ancient (unbelievably intact) hippodrome, and ruins by the sea. Go see this. Recommend using Wild Discovery tours.

A beautiful old authentic Mediterranean city. The people are very friendly, the beach is amazing and the prices are very reasonable. If you like the beach or interested in the Mediterranean culture, this city is a perfect destination.

Sur is a great place to visit on a day stay for a weekend. The city has a vibe of being old and new, west and east simultaneously. When I visited (an afternoon in June during Ramadan) I thought it was very well kept and maintained. You can find dinning options ranging from quick tasty shawarmas to fresh fish at... More

When you first come into Tyre you will see a lot is being done to beautify the city. It has beautiful beaches and breathtaking historical ruins. Definitely worth a trip to see.
