Notre Dame du Liban / Cable Car
Towering over the coast on a mountain top with a view of the Mediterranean and the Lebanon mountain range, this holy place is a site to behold. Travel up from Jounieh by cable car or drive to Notre Dame, also known as Our Lady of Harissa, only 15 minutes away.
Jeita Grotto
Nominated as one of the new seven natural wonders of the world, the Jeita Grotto is a magical cavern deep within the bowels of the earth. A lake inside feeds Beirut with water and the experience of sailing on the lake within a mountain is unforgettable. This must-see attraction is only 15 minutes away.
Downtown Beirut
The reconstructed cosmopolitan heart of Beirut is known for its cafes, high-end boutiques, restaurants and joie de vivre. Admire the mosques, churches and renovated buildings with distinct Beiruti architecture, a mix of east and west. Shop till you drop and dine past midnight in this heavenly neighborhood.
Byblos / Jbeil
Founded over 7000 years ago, Byblos was mentioned in the bible and dates from Phoenician times. Its picturesque port, traditional buildings and famous seafood restaurants contrast with the ruins and old fort of the town, all very close to each other by foot and barely half an hour from Le Royal Hotel - Beirut.
Monnot / Jemmayzeh
Lebanese nightlife at its best can be enjoyed in these competing two areas and their side streets. Monnot and Jemmayzeh are only a few minutes walk from one another, just 15 minutes from Le Royal. Fancy restaurants, trendy clubs and cozy pubs can all be found here.
Beiteddine Palace
An astounding Lebanese palace that features the best of Damascene, Ottoman and Venetian architecture, Beiteddine was built by Emir Bashir Shehab II between 1788 and 1818. A small museum, gardens, mosaics and traditional hamam will amaze you, so will the view of surrounding valleys.
National Museum
Beirut's National Museum was renovated after the war and is a pleasure to visit. It is not a large museum compared to other capitals of the world, but an intimate one that takes you through the many civilizations that have conquered Lebanon, from Phoenician and Byzantine to Persian and Arab.
Tripoli Souks and Castle
Travel through time to the old souks of Tripoli, with the gold market, soap khan, sweet shops, and a crusader castle towering above the old town in all its glory. True Arabian flavors and a friendly people can be found in the old quarter of Lebanon's second largest city, an hour away from the hotel.
Old Sidon
Small alleyways with artisans and shops, an old Ottoman inn known as Khan el Franj, the Audi soap museum, traditional pastry shops, and a castle by the sea. All these attractions are within walking distance of one another, and less than an hour away from Le Royal Hotel - Beirut.
Baalbek
The trip to Baalbek may take a couple of hours, but it is well worth the visit. This is one of the best preserved Roman temples (with later additions by other civilizations). Spectacular architecture, history and a museum onsite will delight you as you explore the preserved temple of Bacchus, god of wine.
Musée de la banque du Liban
BDL Museum takes the visitor back in time to discover the richness of all the currencies that were used in Lebanon from the 5th century B.C. till now.
