Uncover the highlights of the Chouf Mountains south of Beirut. Deir el Qamar is a charming town; observe the different architectural styles on the impressive buildings. Enjoy a tasty meal savoring the local flavors and discover the Beiteddine Palace—a magnificent 19th-century building.

Leave vibrant Beirut behind for the day and journey to the more tranquil setting of the Chouf district. Begin at Deir el Qamar, a former cultural and administrative center; it is a quaint village with winding cobbled streets. Wonder at the white stone and red tiles contrasting beautifully with the green landscape of the hillside.

Following a delicious meal at a traditional restaurant, continue to the Beiteddine Palace—Lebanon’s very own "Alhambra." Still used as the president's summer retreat, step inside to marvel at the Byzantine mosaics, luxurious Turkish baths, and opulently decorated ceilings. Stroll through the perfectly manicured gardens and admire the rolling hills and deep valleys before your drive back to the city.
