Byblos is a thriving modern town with an ancient heart. It is one of the oldest continually inhabited towns in the world and it is also considered to be the birthplace of the modern alphabet.
You can start your visit to Byblos with the old harbor which is sheltered from the sea by a rocky headland, and nearby there are the excavated remains of the ancient city, the Crusader castle, the church of St. John and the beautiful old market area (The Souk). There is also near the castle the Wax Museum which is interesting too.
You can find many restaurants, bars, souvenir shops & resorts all around the city.
I highly recommend you to visit the old souk restaurants & cafes by night (great view of the sea & friendly atmosphere).
Byblos is a magical town which mixes tradition with sophistication & the Crusader castle is a must when visiting Byblos.
