The earliest inhabitants of Beirut were in 3000 BC, and today, it is the capital, administrative, cultural, and economic center of Lebanon. This city’s history stretches back into more than 5000 years, and that can make you guess how many civilizations have already got there, been there, and left their stories there for us to explore.
In fact, excavations in the city have discovered Roman, Phoenician, Hellenistic, Ottoman, and Arab remains. Plus, it was mentioned in many letters in the 14th century BC to the Pharaoh of Egypt.
After the civil war ended in Beirut, it became a lovely, modern, gorgeous city with tourists coming from everywhere.
