There's so much to see in Sidon. This I only saw from afar. It looks lovely. I got on a boat that takes locals to the island beach. I didn't get off the boat, just came straight back. It costs pennies.

Serendipitous discovery since the entrance is hidden and tucked away in the souk. Climb a flight of stairs to reach a beautiful well restored palace with stunning interiors. Highly recommended.

I Had a great time shopping here in the s souk! But the weather was extremely hot, I think some fans would solve this problem. I wish I had time to visit the soup factory but I will do next time

Closed for renovation. Don't bother going this summer! It's supposed to be a very nice historical spot.

This Palace is an absolute must see when traveling to Saida, the family Debbane were very fond of music so the museum is filled with old and rare music instruments. And the museum's guide is very knowledgeable about the history of the palace.
