Your next stop is the village of Deir El Qamar (Deit El Kamar). Formerly the capital of Mount Lebanon, it is now a typical Lebanese village with a historical center, souk (market), museum, mosque and churches. Admire its many well-preserved historical buildings, and see its famous palaces that display ancient Lebanese-style architecture.

After a relaxing lunch of traditional meze (Middle Eastern small dishes) and tapas at a Lebanese restaurant in town (included), continue your tour to Deir El Qamar’s most famous ruins – the Mosque and Castle of Emir Melhem Shehab. On the way, look out your window to see Moussa Castle, a beautiful, yet tiny castle built by a Lebanese visionary over a period of more than 60 years.

At the end of your day trip, return to central Beirut in your comfortable, air-conditioned coach.
