Lebanon may not be a highly sought after tourist destination, but this little Middle Eastern country does have some amazing archaeological sights from Roman times. Check out these Lebanon pictures from my trip!
One of the highlights of this country would have to be the Baalbek ruins, which date back as far as 9,000 BC and can be visited on a day trip from the Beirut area.
Speaking of Beirut, there are also a bunch of cool sights near the coastal area that can be visited easily if you’re staying in the city.
Hopefully these Lebanon pictures inspire your travels too!
