Tyre is among the world’s 20 oldest cities. A Phoenician city that dates back to 2,750 B.C., Tyre in South Lebanon is where you can find historical and natural wonders. One of its main sites is a hippodrome that is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
The city has been continuously inhabited for over 7000 years ever since it has been established in 5,000 B.C. The first inscription in the Phoenician Alphabet was found on the sarcophagus of Ahiram who was the Phoenician king of Byblos!

Batroun is one of the oldest cities in the world. The Phoenicians built a wall in the sea to protect themselves from tidal waves. Batroun’s many beach clubs are recommended to really get into the city’s vibe.
