We had to choose one of the archaeological sites and we chose the Al-Mina. It has an amazing long Mosaic Road flanked by columns which makes you feel guilty walking on the mosaics. You can clearly see where the Roman baths with their hypocaust clay...More

These Roman ruins located on the beach actually extend into the water, so if you bring your bathers you can swim out and see the columns underwater. Be sure to have lunch next door at Captain Bobs for the best seafood we had in Beirut.

I was a bit disappointed at first because I expected much, but still it's nice to visit. There are many sarcophagi, and some collumns, and the little extant piece of a hippodrome, as well as one nice, albeit small gate, and some nice trees, including...More
