Zahlé is the capital and the largest city of Beqaa Governorate, Lebanon. Venture out of the city with trips to Baalbeck (Baalbek Roman Ruins, Temples of Baalbek, & more), Atelier Assaf (in Warhanieh) and Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve (in Barouk). There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Chateau Ksara, make a trip to Cardo Maximus (Aanjar), and delve into the distant past at Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar.

For traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Zahle trip itinerary builder site .

Cairo, Egypt to Zahle is an approximately 6.5-hour combination of flight and car. When traveling from Cairo in September, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Zahle: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Beirut.

Sitting on the Mediterranean coast, Beirut, the country's capital and largest city, has plenty of appeal itself, as well as offering a convenient base for exploring the country's other sights and cities.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Zingy Ride. Step out of Beirut to go to Harissa and see Our Lady of Lebanon, which is approximately 38 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Jeita Grotto, gain insight at American University of Beirut, see the interesting displays at Mim Museum - Mineral Museum, and don't miss a visit to Zaitunay Bay.

To find reviews, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Beirut travel itinerary planner.

Getting from Zahle to Beirut by car takes about 1.5 hours. In September, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
