American University of Beirut is a beautiful place to walk around as a guest visitor. Admission is free, but bring an ID to get a guest pass before entering the campus. The guest entrance is on Bliss Street across from the McDonalds.

AUB is a beautiful campus and has lovely gardens that the public can walk through. Would definitely recommend a visit if you’re looking to hide away from the noisy streets of Beirut. Also a lot of friendly cats to spot!

High quality education and a nice environment to walk in. Try not to get so familiar with the space because it will loose its magic.
