Of all the many day trips we did in lebanon, this place beat them all, even the Jeita Grotto. The ruins are very well preserved and you get a good overview of how it looked back in Ancient times. The ticket price was 15,000 Lebanese...More

The temples are stunningly huge and still well preserved. Makes one wonder how ancient men could build such giant structures that stand the test of time.

This place is just stunning - it is so impressive in terms of size and grandeur & beauty, and for the fact that so much has remained intact. It eclipses any other Roman remains that I have seen anywhere in the world. This was the...More

There is still a lot of restauration to be done, but the remains give a very good idea of what this magnificent site must have been in its days of glory. The propylea entrance is massive, buils with huge limestone bloks. The courtyard is big,...More

The hardest part about visiting is leaving! As a Roman historian, I had no choice but to travel here from Beirut on two small mini-buses (changing in Chtoura, for the curious!). Given the political situation in neighbouring Syria, and the status of the city as...More

Salaam, All! I'm trying to decide if I ought to include the Temples of Baalbek ruins in my Lebanon itinerary despite having visited a good number of ancient ruins scattered across the Mediterranean and North America in the last three years. I'm hoping some of the experienced travellers here can opine? Here are the details: I'll be in Lebanon next month, and will have time in my itinerary to visit the capital, the coastal cities from Tripoli in the north to Tyre in the south, as well as an extra day to saunter out east to visit Baalbek. However, in the last three years or so, I've visited a good number of ruin sites, and really want to diversify my travel experiences. If the legendary Temple of Baalbek site is simply another ruin site to check off a list, then perhaps it is not for me. That said, I'm well aware that every ruin site is different and it is therefore possible to have visited a good number in the recent past and still extract value and enjoyment from yet another. Would this be so in my case with a visit to Baalbek? My past three-year ruins itinerary includes some of the ancient Roman cities of Northern Algeria; some sites in Northern and Central Tunisia; a few Mayan pyramids and temples in Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico; along with the usual suspects in Rome and around. Keen to learn your thoughts on this, and thanks in advance to all those who take the time to respond. :-)
