Tyre, Sur

Explore Tyre, an ancient Phoenician city home to many excavated ruins originating from various civilizations. Situated on a peninsula by the Mediterranean Sea, it features pristine beaches and blue waters. Wander by foot or catch a taxi to the archaeological sites, including the Roman hippodrome (ancient stadium)--the most popular site that's listed as a World Heritage Site. The ruins include a grand necropolis with several hundreds preserved sarcophagi. Stop to see the hot spring ruins for their Roman architecture. An old Phoenician port by the beach features numerous restaurants and ideal views of the coastline. The site also includes a lighthouse, a good spot for watching the sunset.

  • The archaeological site of al-Mina includes the ruins of the Roman and Byzantine shooting, located on the seashore which gives it a special charm. The columns delimit what is believed to be the space of the Agora. The photovoltaic lighting system was created with the contribution of the Italian Contingent (Folgore Brigade) of the United Nations interposition forces. A short distance away is also the site of Al-Bass.

  • If you are going to Lebanon you will not only stop in Beirut but try to visit also the other cities that are very interesting for their history. One of these is tyre or Tyr or shot, apart from the remarkable traffic coming out of Beirut and then when you cross the city of Sidon or Sidra then the road E; Very good but very unruly motorists. The city offers many opportunities and among these are their wonderful archaeological sites, but do not miss a passadjiata on the promenade and a nice meal based on fish and other Lebanese specialties
