This is such a lovely place. The ruïns are really great, you can walk for hours in this area.Outside the ruïns you can wander around the souk, the port, ...
Byblos is a nice port village.
Would love to come back.

A very peaceful place where one can melt with the sea, the air, the raw nature and the city skyline. Just look to the open sea and smell the fresh breeze.
It is highly recommended that you have a guide with you to explain the rich history of the site.
just a walk away is Byblos old town and Souk which is fantastic as well.
Have your lunch in one of amazing nearby restaurants; local dishes are a wonder.

great amazing place ,to see the history castle, while in your way to this castle you will enjoy shopping at the covered Souk, buy your souvenirs, you can spend 3 to 4 hours not only at the castle but the area enjoy the shore, restaurants,bars, if you get tired you can hire cart every half hour you can find one it will take you all around from up down to the coast , great place worth & must see in Lebanon

With a history and remains going back to 3000BC, this historic site is well worth visiting. A lovely setting and well appointed with useful signage.

An interesting place to visit and well worth the time to look around and take it all in, 1 or 2 hours max and is close to the souk and hotels, bars and seaside/port. Well worth the visit.
