Cruises from Lebanon

Cruises from Lebanon

If you are looking for cruises from Lebanon or for a cruise trip and you live in Lebanon, you may have asked most travel agencies, or looked at the advertisement of most travel agencies, and seen beautiful Cruise Ships features, only to learn that major cruise ships depart either from Venice or Barcelona, and rarely from the nearby Cyprus, Greece or Turkey, whereas some smaller cruise ships depart from Greece.

Knowing that a cruise trip can be one of the most fascinating vacations one can look for, we have thought that it was time to organize all the cruise information that could be relevant to Lebanese citizens, or anyone wanting to organize his or her cruise while his or her initial point of departure is Lebanon in one place.

Cruise Packages from Lebanon?
Most Lebanon Travel Agencies suggest some cruise packages from Lebanon, and most worldwide cruise companies are represented by one or more of the local Travel Agencies. While it’s possible for anyone in Lebanon to go to anywhere in the world to take a cruise, the truth is that the most convenient cruises for Lebanese citizens are those around the mediterranean, for their proximity, ease of reach, and subsequently cost.

Over the next month, and independently from the different travel agencies operating in Lebanon, we will be featuring the different cruise trips available in the mediterranean, whether these are covered by local travel agencies or not. We do believe that some available cruise trips represent better deals and better enjoyment than those offered by local travel agencies, and in the end, since these are your vacations, you should be given the choice to select the best cruise trip for your family and yourself.

The largest and most noble Roman temples ever built, they are also among the best preserved. Towering high above the Beqaa plain, their monumental proportions proclaimed the power and wealth of Imperial Rome.

    Breakfast at the hotel. Departure to the capital of the South to visit Sidon (Saida), said to mean “fishing”. Sidon was the third great Phoenician city-state, rivaling Byblos and Tyre as a naval power. The town was conquered by the Crusaders after a famous siege lasting 47 days, and then retaken by Saladin 70 years later.
    The city’s northern harbor is graced by Castle of the Sea, erected in the early 13th Century by the crusading Knights of St. John of the Hospital of Jerusalem on an islet at the mouth of the harbor. In the old town more recent buildings worth a visit are Khan as-Sabun, Khan el-Franj and the Great Mosque above the Egyptian Harbor which still retains the 13th Century walls of the fortress Church of the Hospitallers.
    Proceed to the Chouf Region. Lunch in Beiteddine. In the afternoon, visit the Beiteddine Palace (meaning “house of faith”). Beiteddine is a palace built at the beginning of the 19th century, by Emir Bechir Chehab II, on a rocky spur dominating a steep, precipitous valley. A perfect example of classic Lebanese architecture of the time, it has decorated ceilings, colorful marble mosaic floors, luxurious Turkish Baths and harem suites, in a setting of beautifully groomed gardens, a guest house in which the French Poet “Lamartine” once dwelt, water jets and colonnades. The palace remained the emir’s residence until his forced exile in 1840, when the Ottomans used it as the government residence. It was declared a historic monument in 1934, and then began a restoration process. Since 1943, it has been the summer home of the president. A folkloric museum occupies one wing and in the palace’s renovated stables is an exquisite display of mosaics from a ruined Byzantine church and other structures of the same period. On the way back, stop at Deir el Qamar, famous for its palaces which display the ancient Lebanese style in architecture. Return to Beirut.

Modern scholars believe the site of Byblos dates back at least 7,000 years (5,000-4,000 BC). The city’s current name is taken from the Greek word for “papyrus” (paper). Byblos was not only a major trading center and producer of papyrus, but is also famous for being the city where Phoenician scholars created the world’s first alphabet. The small, harbor was once a thriving commercial center, where Lebanon’s cedar wood was shipped throughout the region in ancient times.
    Byblos has extensive archaeological ruins which have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

    The Grand Ladies Of Lebanon

    The Grand Ladies Of Lebanon

    Article by Alissa Haddad

    Lebanon is extra special because her four grand ladies continue to bewitch and entrance people from all over the world with their ancient secrets and their ageless beauty. The five grand ladies referred to are her eternal cities – Beirut, Tyre, Byblos, Sidon, and Tripoli. The country may be in turmoil, but the world continues to hope that these graceful ladies will not be harmed.

    The Capital

    Beirut is the geographic and economic hub of the country. It strongly retains influences from the French. Foch Allenby, the Central District area is the favorite of crowds. Here you find a mix of different architecture with walls molded from yellow stone that echoes the art influenced by bygone eras of the Ottoman, French, and Italian style.

    The young and old shop for trinkets at the Souk al Barghout, a flea market that draw crowds of thousands – both local shoppers and curious tourists. Here you can find jewelry, antiques, handicrafts, and paintings. The flea market is like a wonderful box that holds colorful and assorted treasures.

    In the evening, people take long walks along Foch Allenby’s cobbled streets, ride their bikes, and drink cups of coffee in quaint cafes. Famous Lebanese wines overflow in the local pubs. The outdoor restaurants are teeming with diners and people revel into the night.

    In the infamous Rue Minet El Hosn, people promenade in the lazy afternoons. They take the sights of interesting and fabulous facades of hotels and old buildings bearing influences of western and eastern cultures. The Rue Minet El Hosn was the stomping ground for the civil war that ravaged Beirut in 1975.

    Minet El Hosn is swamped with big name hotels like Normandie, Alcazar, Phoenicia, Holiday Inn, Palm Beach, and St. George. If you go to Beirut, check out these hotels and get the best service to be found in this part of the globe.

    Where East Meets West

    In Tyre, marvel at the white sugar sand beach, sparkling waters, and the breathtaking sceneries, adding up to any visitors’ enjoyment of Lebanon’s beaches. Tourists and locals alike enjoy scuba diving and fishing. Swimmers love the warm, pristine waters. Nearby, the woodlands provide a good hunting ground. Relaxing in this ancient but bustling seaside city gives you that feeling that you’re looking at the same sea famous biblical characters crossed in their ancient vessels.

    Byblos is the oldest inhabited area in Lebanon, dating back 7000 years. Once a mighty province ruled by kings, it is now a busy metropolis with a flourishing trade. Byblos is an archeologist’s heaven. The old buildings and Egyptian architecture are still around to fascinate tourists with their link to a proud and ancient past.

    Another must-see place is Sidon. This is the place where Noah and his family landed after the Great Flood. The romantic ruins from the Crusader Period are the Castle of Sea constructed by the Knights of St. John, while the Castle of St. Louis or Land Castle sits atop the acropolis of what was once a Phoenician stronghold.

    Tripoli in Northern Lebanon draws tourists to its ancient castles and the Fortress of Saint Gilles. The fortress was built in 12 BC but was later remodeled by the Mamluks and the Ottomans. There are 45 registered historical buildings that history buffs shouldn’t miss. Tripoli was also once a ship-building center and later the hub for learning.

    Lebanon still beckons the outside world. Go and experience the converging cultures of east and west in its famous cities. The grand ladies of await you.

    Well-Known Ancient Tourist Attractions In The Republic Of Lebanon

    Well-Known Ancient Tourist Attractions In The Republic Of Lebanon

    Article by Ben Pate

    If history is something you are passionate about, consider visiting the country of Lebanon. Lebanon’s history is long and full of different phases, occupations, and periods of tumult, making it the interesting country that it is today. Lebanon is actually home to some of the oldest populated cities in the entire world: Byblos, Beirut, and Sidon. However, there is more to Lebanon than just history. Lebanon is actually a world-class party destination, with celebrities making their way to the biggest cities to party, and it was declared the number one tourist destination in 2009. However, if you’re thinking of traveling, either for the history or the parties, remember that you will need an new passport id card.Now you are able to go online in order to apply for passports, and it’s so much easier than having to deal with the traditional passport process. It’s only a few easy steps: go online, pick which sort of service you need, choose a date for it to be delivered, and the process is done. You can even get 24 hour American passports, perfect for if you want to make a quick getaway for a week.Lebanon is located along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and shares a long border with Syria. Because of this location, much of its history is Roman. There are seemingly countless Roman ruins around the country, and most of them are surprisingly easy to get to. One of the most famous Roman sites in the world, and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is Baalbek. This is an ancient city, featuring some of the biggest and best preserved Roman temples in the world. Considered a wonder of the ancient world, Baalbek is a place full of testaments to Roman history. There are many temples, including the Temple of Jupiter and the Temple of Bacchus, and each retaining much of their original form and decoration. These huge temples rose around 70 feet high.The Qadisha Valley and the nearby Cedars of God form yet another World Heritage Site. Qadisha translates into “holy,” as this valley features some of the most ancient Christian monasteries in the world. The Cedars are the remnants of an ancient forest, full of the oldest trees in the world, some of which are still living at 3000 years old. The wood from these trees were one of the most highly valued building materials in ancient times, used by Solomon to construct the First Temple of Jerusalem, as well as by Egyptians to build boats. There are many, many caves located in this valley which were used in ancient times as shelters for those fleeing persecution. Recently, mummies of ancient villagers dating back to 1283 AD were found.Tyre, founded in 2750 BC, is an ancient city where people still live today. This particular spot is famous in Classical Roman Mythology as the birthplace of Dido and Europa, two famous characters in the mythology. Al Mina is another archaeological site to visit. Much of the original Roman architecture is still standing, and it’s also located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea.Lebanon’s nightlife scene should not be underestimated. Especially in places like Greater Beirut, the parties start late in the night and don’t end until the sun rises. Then, the parties switch to the miles of beaches that Lebanon has, which are always full of people. Some parties take place on rooftop clubs and bars, overlooking the busy city.

    Lebanon Hotels presents the Chouf District

    Lebanon Hotels presents the Chouf District

    Article by Nona Ballout

    Lebanon Hotels presents the Chouf DistrictChouf referring to the Chouf region can also be spelled Shouf, Shuf or Chuf, a historic region of Lebanon, and also an administrative district of the Mount Lebanon governorate.

    Situated in the South Eastern of Beirut, Lebanon capital, Chouf is made of a small coast well famous for the Christian town of Damour, and of valleys and mountains composing the Barouk Mountain western slopes. The Chouf mountain is largely populated by the Lebanese Druze community, currently led by the chief of Progressist party Walid Jumblatt staying in the Jumblatt palace in Moukhtara.

    Princes of Lebanon have always lived in Chouf, like Emir Bachir Chehab II. The late constructed the famous palace of Beiteddine during the first half of the 19th century. Deir El Qamar (literally the monastery of the moon) is another old place of Chouf, located under Beiteddine.

    Baakline is also a large town of Chouf. Historically it was the capital of Mount Lebanon. It is also the birthplace of Prince Fakhreddine. Emir Fakhreddine is still a Lebanese symbol among all Lebanese communutiesl. He switched his residence from Baakline to Deir El Qamar as a sign of his neutrality.

    Harmony has always reigned between different religions and communities in the Chouf Mountain, in spite of some violent clashes that occurred between different religions across history, notably in the 19th century and in the Lebanese Civil War of 1975-1990.

    The Chouf Mountain is well preserved and boasts a beautiful natural reserve, until now spared from the building frenzy taking place in neighboring Metn and Kesrwan regions. The Chouf Cedars Forest, directly near the Barouk Mountain is nowadays the biggest Cedars reserve in Lebanon.

    The Chouf Mountain benefits each year from a lot of tourism and excusions, because of the magnificent landscapes, traditional houses, green forests, and because of the hospitality of its population.

    During summer, festivals take place in the towns of Bekaata and Baaklin, and the international festival of Beiteddine is one of the most visited and sought by Lebanese and tourists alike, and in the past few years, the hotels sector has flourished in a remarkable way, knowing that the most known hotels in the region are Mir Amine Palace and Barouk Palace.

    In June and July alone, the reserve receives more than fifteen thousand tourists each year, among them a number of environmentalists, who come to inspect the situation in the place and devise plans that contribute to the implementation of development projects.The Tourism Sector benefits local residents and creates a lot of job opportunities for many of them.
