About the Sites
Our day starts with Baalbek. There we will visit the roman ruins of 3 temples: The temple of Venus (goddess of love, beauty, desire, sex, fertility, prosperity and victory), the temple of Jupiter (god of the sky and thunder and king of the gods in Ancient Roman religion and mythology), and lastly the temple of Bacchus (god of god of agriculture, wine and fertility). The temples were built starting the first century BC and are UNESCO world heritage site.
Our next stop is Anjar, where we will have lunch at the popular Al-shams restaurant, indulging in fine Lebanese Cuisine. In Anjar we will also see the 8th century ruins of an umayyad palace.
