While the country is relatively small, you can still spend a few weeks in Lebanon and be entertained day after day. This comprehensive Lebanon tour is packed with absolutely every corner of the country you could want to visit, ticking off all of the big-hitters – Beirut, Baalbek, the Qadisha Valley – but also the corners that not every traveller experiences, and longer overnight stays so you can really soak it up.
