A historical and archeological city that you cant miss when you come to lebanon. Far around 1h 30 min by car from beirut city. You can have some great food and some shopping and you can enjoy the fresh air next to the beach.

Hello! Can anyone recommend a quaint, yet economical accommodation in Tyre? We will be traveling at the end of October. Unfortunately, everything appears so very over-priced. Thanks! M.
