About this book

• Comprehensively updated throughout, with 4 new  maps and 20–25% of  new material  
• Newsweek magazine in it’s The Perfect 100 poll nominated Beirut one of  the world’s top ten cities in 2012

Although only half the size of Wales, Lebanon offers extraordinary diversity. Here, some of the oldest human settlements in the world at the Phoenician ports of Tyre, Sidon and Byblos sit alongside modern Beirut, popular for its cuisine, eclectic nightlife and mosaic of people. In Lebanon's second city, Tripoli, busy medieval souks are watched over by a vast Crusader castle. Outside the city, snow-capped mountains and the lush Qadisha Valley with its snaking river and waterfalls provide entertainment for skiers and hikers, while the Mediterranean Sea draws sun and watersports enthusiasts.

Bradt Travel Guide: Lebanon provides detailed cultural and practical information to this increasingly popular destination. It also provides in-depth historical and religious background enabling visitors to travel with awareness and sensitivity.

"Bradt Guides are the favourites of travellers who wish not merely to see but to understand."
- Dervla Murphy
