Lebanon has seen a revival in recent years, with new hotels and shopping centers popping up in trendy cities such as Beirut and yachts dotted along the bar-lined marinas. But with a number of ancient Roman ruins and claims to the “world’s oldest harbor” and “world’s oldest inhabited city,” Lebanon’s past is not to be forgotten. Fly to Lebanon for your next holiday with Alitalia and discover its rich culture.
Being such a narrow country, it’s easy to get a little taste of everything Lebanon has to offer. Book tickets to Lebanon for the winter months and hit the ski slopes, or travel to Lebanon when it’s warmer to enjoy the beaches and explore the caves and turquoise waters of Jeita Grottos. History buffs should visit the Roman temples at Baalbeck, and stay in the summer for the Baalbeck International Festival.
Summers in Lebanon, June to September, are warm, dry, and the peak of the tourist season. Avoid the crowds and enjoy milder weather with cool evenings in April and May. Find flight deals to Lebanon with Alitalia for travel between December and March to sample the country’s winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding by day and its thrilling nightlife by night.
