Byblos The Phoenician with Mira's Guided Tours

We are happy to announce our first walking tour in Byblos the magnificent city of our Phoenician coast on the 6th of September!

Jbeil named Byblos by the Greeks, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, with the earliest evidence of settlement going back to 5000 B.C. Byblos is known as the city of papyrus trading with the pharaohs and home of the Phoenician alphabet.

From a great Canaanite-Phoenician city-port and religious center to a charming medieval town, Jbeil today is a fascinating city offering diverse atmospheres to its visitors. People can wander in the old Ottoman souks, visit the ancient ruins and admire the crusader architecture and a picturesque Phoenician harbor!

Our visit will begin at the archaeological site of the Crusader Castle, the Wall Ramparts, the king’s Well (Bir el Malek), the Canaanite-Phoenician Temples, the Roman Nymphaeum and Theatre, and the Kings’ Necropolis. After finishing, we will take our lunch break at the restaurant Malena with the best view in town; followed by a visit to the harbor and then a walk around the city to visit the crusader's church, the harbor, the souks and the fish fossils museum.

Our guide Marcelle Saliba grew up in Jbeil and still lives there with her family. She is the expert of her city and she will share with us the richness of her hometown. Marcelle has been working as a guide for almost 10 years.
