The best things to do in Beirut

As a city full of cultural and religious nuances that's also marked by the Lebanon war and the separation between its western and eastern halves, there's no shortage of interesting stuff to do in Beirut. Its history has left a lot of things to see in Beirut, both of Christian and Muslim ideologies, and it's important to explore both sides.

Some of the more religious places to visit in Beirut are Mohammad al-Amin Mosque, a symbol of the city, the Great Mosque El Omari, and the Cathedral of Saint George. For those who prefer the sea, you can also enjoy the many beaches, which are special and relaxing Beirut activities. The coast offers stunning views and is one of the main attractions in Beirut.

There is a lot of diversity in regards to the landscape in Beirut. You'll find rocky beaches, sandy expanses, and cliffs. Another one of the things to do in Beirut is visiting the neighborhoods of Hamra, La Corniche, and Cardo Maximus. The famous Green Line, one of the city's main streets that almost extends the entire length of the city, was once the boundary between the Muslim and Christian area during the war and is one of the most interesting Beirut attractions.
