Beirut sightseeing questions

I have time constraints for my upcoming day in Beirut. I want to see all of the following in a day.

1. Is it easy to walk to all of these places?

2. If I spend 5-10 minutes at each place, will I be able to see everything in a day.

3. Any suggestions on finding a good map of Beirut so I know how to navigate my walk around Beirut? 4. Any dangerous places to avoid walking in Beirut?

5. Are tourists allowed inside Grand Serail?

6. I have read about taking a cable car to Hrissa. Is that where the big statue of Our lady of Lebanon is?

7. Is Solidere the same thing as Place d'etoile?

Al-Amari mosque

Cardo Maximus


Emir Munzer Tannoukhi mosque

Grand Serail

Green Line

Our lady of Lebanon statue

Cable car to Hrissa

Martyr's square and martyr's statue

Hi Oscar,

You can see most of these places in a day as they ar in walking distance except for Pigeon rocks which ar far up on the corniche from Beirut City Centre(Solidere) and the cable car and visit to Hrissa could be included on your trip to Jeitta and Byblos as it is past Jeitta in Jounnieh.

You can also have a walk around Gemayze there nice old buildings and many restaurants.

For more information browse around the following link:


Have a great time walking around, the weather has become very pleasant for walking.
