Stretching for 120km between the Mount Lebanon and Anti-Lebanon mountain ranges, the Bekaa Valley is a region known for its agricultural wealth. One product above all is the most important for travellers: wine. The long dry summers and wet winters with ample water supply running off the mountains make this an ideal place for growing vines, and you can spend days on end here visiting the dozens of wineries across the region that produce millions of bottles a year.
Aside from its viticulture value, the region is also home to Baalbek, one of the most significant Roman archaeological sites in the country (and among the best preserved in the world), and the ruins at Aanjar, a remnant of the Arabian Umayyad dynasty of the eighth century. This combination of history and fruitful land warrants at least a few days spent here seeing everything the Bekaa has to offer.
