A great hidden find. The Jupiter temple was the largest temple ever built in the Roman empire. Though only a few columns remain, their sheer size is incredibly impressive. The Bacchus temple is well preserved. A great site overall.

Excellent ruins. Multiple temples, views, information. However, if you are not interested in history and ancient sites, this is not for you. Went on a tour from Beirut and as we the only ones that had booked we got a driver and tour guide to...More

Baalbek is a brief drive from Beirut, but definitely well worth it. If you have any interest in Archeological or historic adventures, this is a must see. Definitely recommend paying up the $30 for a tour guide. You get your money's worth. There are tour...More

I have spent much time in Greece, and had just toured Turkey before arriving in Lebanon. I had no idea that I would be more astonished with Baalbek than I was with Ephesus. This is not intended to diminish the exquisiteness of the ruins of...More

I've been to a few of these kind of sites and I'm often unmoved. This, however, is very impressive and definitely a must-see if in Lebanon.

All I can say is snow capped mountain in the background in the start of summer and 40 degrees in the location.

Salaam, All! I'm trying to decide if I ought to include the Temples of Baalbek ruins in my Lebanon itinerary despite having visited a good number of ancient ruins scattered across the Mediterranean and North America in the last three years. I'm hoping some of the experienced travellers here can opine? Here are the details: I'll be in Lebanon next month, and will have time in my itinerary to visit the capital, the coastal cities from Tripoli in the north to Tyre in the south, as well as an extra day to saunter out east to visit Baalbek. However, in the last three years or so, I've visited a good number of ruin sites, and really want to diversify my travel experiences. If the legendary Temple of Baalbek site is simply another ruin site to check off a list, then perhaps it is not for me. That said, I'm well aware that every ruin site is different and it is therefore possible to have visited a good number in the recent past and still extract value and enjoyment from yet another. Would this be so in my case with a visit to Baalbek? My past three-year ruins itinerary includes some of the ancient Roman cities of Northern Algeria; some sites in Northern and Central Tunisia; a few Mayan pyramids and temples in Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico; along with the usual suspects in Rome and around. Keen to learn your thoughts on this, and thanks in advance to all those who take the time to respond. :-)

I don't think you should drive yourself in Lebanon. To go to Baalbek you have to cross several checkpoints. I felt that the situation was very unstable there. We used a great driver who is also a guide. Adel Nayfeh his... More
