Vacanze a Beirut
A Beirut holiday might still sound like an unlikely proposition. There are quieter, more orderly places for a long weekend, true. But for buzz, style and energy there is nowhere to match it.
Here’s a city with a seafront to rival the Riviera and restaurants where you can feast for hours and still feel pretty healthy at the end. But most of all flights to Beirut take you to a city where people really do believe in living life to the full. The French influence is everywhere, not least in the sun-baked Beqaa Valley, home to some celebrated vineyards and colossal, really colossal, Roman ruins at Baalbek.
