Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Tyre's Hippodrome is a sprawling spectacle of ancient Roman grandeur. The Hippodrome once held up to 40,000 people, who sat along the stadium stands to cheer on chariots races. The ruins are remarkably well preserved and you can climb up the stadium seating through ancient archways and a Roman street. Entrance costs 120,000 LBP and the site is open daily from 8;30 am until sunset

A fairly well preserved Roman Hippodrome with a largely intact grandstand and an obelisk. Someone had left a white horse nearby which was rather funny.

Must have been impressive when it was all present. Today, however, only a small part of the hippodrome still exists, although it's complete in this small part, and makes an impression.

Simply amazing and very well preserved youll get there on the path you walk on once you enter to the archeological site of tyre ruins. On Google Maps its (al bass archeological site).

Another impressive site to visit in Tyr. You can climb to the top of the stairs and enjoy the fabulous view over the site.

Great place where you can feel the roman finger print in the middle east even 2000 years later. Besides the hypodrome, dont miss the great cementry from the later roman empire with incredible examples of roman funerary sculpture. The hyprodorme still conserves the only Roman Arch of Triumph in Lebanon and one of the very few from the Middle East

The Hippodrome is a must see - that it could seat thousands of Romans alone is enough to get your imagination flowing. It’s such a shame that it is no longer in tact after the Crusaders removed large chunks of it, but nevertheless you can still sit high up on the remaining stone and marble seating to get a better impression of the truly magnificent scale, and skill of the Romans.

Built in the 2nd Century, this is the largest and best preserved hippodrome in the world, with the original grand stands able to seat 30,000 people. Beneath the seating area you can still see areas for shops, stalls and stables. It is said that elements of the original Ben Hur movie were filmed here.
