Anjar, Baalbek, and Ksara Day Trip from Beirut
From US$95.00
Overview
For a small country, Lebanon packs a whole ton of history into a seriously compact space—which doesn’t mean it’s easy to get around. Rather than risk driving, amateur historians will thrill to this day tour. Discover the UNESCO-listed sites of Roman-era Baalbek and early Islamic Anjar with an informative local guide—and enjoy a restaurant lunch and wine tasting too.
What to Expect
Greet your guide at your central hotel or their downtown office and board your air-conditioned vehicle for UNESCO-listed Baalbek, known for its impressive Roman ruins including the massive Temple of Jupiter.
Relax over a lunch of “meze” (tapas) at a local restaurant before driving onto Anjar. UNESCO recognized it as a World Heritage site for its early Islamic ruins, the remains of an 8th-century city and palace complex founded by the Umayyad dynasty.
Finally, continue to Ksara, where ancient caves are home to Chateau Ksara, Lebanon’s oldest winery. After a winery tour and a wine tasting, board your vehicle to return to your Beirut starting point.

Amazing historical sites

The temples at Anjar & Baalbek were really spectacular, particularly the latter containing the biggest, most complete and smallest Roman temples in the world. Our guide was really knowledgeable and she gave us lots of little tidbits about Lebanon as well as we were driving...More
