Tyre is among the world’s 20 oldest cities. A Phoenician city that dates back to 2,750 B.C., Tyre is where you can find historical and natural wonders. One of its main sites is a hippodrome which is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
The city has been continuously inhabited 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!
