About the Sites

your day starts with Jeita Grotto, two majestic separate, but interconnected karstic limestone caves. The caves were nominated for the seven new world wonders. The Jeita upper cave has 750 metres (2, 460 ft) of accessible walk-way, known for having the longest stalactite in the world. After visiting the upper caves, you then take a small boat-ride in the lower caves a truly unique experience.

We then move on to the telephrique, a cable-car ride that takes you to Harissa, Where Our Lady of Lebanon sits. Our Lady of Lebanon is one of the most important shrines in the world honoring the Virgin Mary. The shrine is highlighted by a huge, 15-ton bronze statue of the virgin.

Our last stop: Byblos. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Astonishingly having survived the Phoenicians, Romans, the crusades, and Ottomans. The city charms visitors: from its Souqs(markets) to its magnificent harbor, Crusader castle, and sea-side promenade.
