About Beirut

Beirut is the main and largest city in Lebanon with a total population of 1,916,100 inhabitants. It is located in the Mediterranean coast, on a peninsula, being also the main port of the country due to its strategic location.

Beirut is one of the oldest cities in the world; it has been inhabited for more than 5,000 years: there is evidence of Beirut in Ancient Egypt letters dated of 15th century BC. Ancient Greek, the Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire ruled over the country in some point of its history.

The city hosts the Lebanon’s government and many of the financial partners of the country. It is the main economic, cultural and education centre of the country.

Tourism has been historically an important economic sector to Lebanon, especially before the Lebanese Civil War which come to known Beirut as the “Paris of East” for its historic and diverse atmosphere and for being in the past under the French rule.  

 

While your stay in Beirut, you shouldn’t miss the Beirut Central District, since it is a pedestrianized sector and hosts the core of all tourism. It is worth to see since it hosts Venetian, Gothic, French, Ottoman and Arabesque architecture buildings such as mosques, crusaders churches and also some Roman ruins. Amenities like restaurants, cafés and shopping malls are available in this sector.
