Tripoli Old City Tour with Miar's Guided Tour

Let’s escape back in time to discover the forgotten jewels of the old city of Tripoli, once capital of the Crusader county of Tripoli & the only Mamlouk city in Lebanon.

We will walk together around vibrant souks, hidden Hammams, majestic Mosques, colorful khans, stylish Madrassas (Coranic schools) and more.

For lunch, we will taste the delicious traditional Tripolitan specialties at Akkra in the old city; followed by some delicious desserts at one of the oldest sweets shop in town Hallab.
