Great history in a now quiet surroundings
Apr. 2019
We visited Cardo Maximus and found it really interesting to walk around the premises and imagine what the place looked like hundreds of years ago. The information on site is not that great.

Nice tour
Dec. 2018 • Couples
This is a site to visit with a tour guide who knows the site. It is an interesting site but not any plaques or guidance on the site. Cardo Maximus has some interesting ruins that are still standing which provides a sense of what it must have been like but not at all as complete as the Baalbek Roman ruins. Also very muddy when there has been rain so wear boots or shoes that will stand up to mud.

Amazing city
Nov. 2018 • Solo
Cardo Maximus is the main road in the ancient Umayyad city of Aanjar. Built in the 8th century, this trading hub still stands with its amazing ruins, anti seismic architecture, shops, two palaces (in ruins), a public bath, remains of a church, and of a mosque.

Worth A Visit - but with a guide
Aug. 2018 • Couples
There is another entry for this attraction entitled, Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar'. Located in the Bekaa Valley, these famous ruins are certainly worth a visit, but go with a guide. There is basically no information on site, no shop, no guidebooks on sale or information boards and the man at the entrance was just a local taking the admittance fee. There are however toilets. So much more could be done to make the visit more pleasurable.

A very nice visit
Jul. 2018 • Family
Ideal for a day by Anjar area, this visit takes almost an hour to an hour and a half with family. Tourists fees applies and are paid on the door, we have had problems finding a guide on our day of visit however friends told us that usually there are guides that one can book right on the entrance door.

Make sure you have a guide
Jul. 2016 • Couples
We went there with a guide and it was nice as she explained the history of the place. Its not a crowded place like baalbek for example so you can go there and be the only person visitng and there are not many signs explaining the history of the place. The place is interesting to visit and they still have some structures intact.
