LEBANON COUNTRY OF DIVERSITY

Bordered on one side by the Mediterranean and on the other by two parallel mountain ranges, Lebanon seems a country suspended between the sky and the sea. Despite its small area (10,452 square km), this is a land resplendent in its diverse geography, landscape, culture and history.
From the white-capped blue sea, to the countryside, from arid hills to lush forests, the visitor discovers a series of contrasts.
Bare rocky mountains are followed by luxuriant valleys watered by rivers and waterfalls. Views change quickly from pine covered hills to dramatic rocky landscapes, to fertile plains laid out with farms and vineyards.

Lebanon is also a country of multiple origins shaped by 10,000 years of history.
From earliest times its natural beauty and privileged geographical position attracted conquerors and occupiers who left behind traces of their civilizations.
Each added an indelible imprint to the makeup of what would become modern Lebanon. The legacy of the past is clear from the extraordinary variety of archaeological sites in every corner of the country.
From Phoenician sarcophagi to Roman temples, to Crusader castles and Mamlouk mosques, wherever you go, evidence of this country’s rich and tormented past comes to light.
The cuisine of Lebanon, like its culture is surprising in its diversity. It is known above all for its mezze, countless dishes of savory hors-d’euvres which are endlessly replenished and served in a warm and congenial setting. Any attempt to describe Lebanon is a task carried out in vain. It cannot be confined by words; it must be lived. So we invite you to visit our marvelous country, where roads lead from town to village and from site to city, from one epoque to another.
