Superb Lionhead sculpture, Jupiter Temple, Baalbek
20 – 26 March
A short but in-depth detailed tour of Lebanon, once known as the ‘Switzerland of the Middle East’. Scenically stunning with high mountains, deep fertile valleys and a stunning coastal stretch, along with a wealth of well-preserved archaeological sites with very few visitors and mixed with the region’s best cuisine and world rated wineries, the country has much to offer! The tour covers this small but alluring country in its entirety, allowing time to discover both its rich antiquities, in particular the great temples of Baalbek, but also appreciate its modernity in busy Beirut and the relaxed ancient harbour city of Byblos.
