If there’s one place not to miss when you visit Lebanon, it’s breathtaking Ba’albek. Ba’albek boasts some of the most impressive and well-preserved Roman ruins in the world. Often overlooked by tourists (for many reasons, ask us, we’ll explain), this ancient site often offers a unique opportunity for an intimate, almost private viewing, allowing you to immerse yourself fully in the splendour of the past. Marvel at the towering columns of the Temple of Jupiter, a testament to the grandeur of the Roman Empire. Explore the intricately carved stones of the Temple of Bacchus and the Temple of Venus, each a masterpiece of ancient engineering and artistry.

Continue your journey to Anjar, a lesser-known gem nestled in the fertile Bekaa Valley. Here, the ruins of an Umayyad city await, offering a glimpse into Lebanon’s Islamic heritage. Explore the well-preserved streets, lined with the remnants of ancient palaces, mosques, and baths. Admire the intricate mosaics that adorn the floors of these ancient buildings, each telling a story of a bygone era.

But perhaps the most captivating aspect of Anjar lies in its cultural significance as a crossroads of civilisations. As you wander through its streets, you’ll feel the echoes of the past, where East met West and cultures intermingled. From Roman to Byzantine to Umayyad influences, Anjar is a living testament to Lebanon’s rich and diverse history.
