The temple is really beautiful. Used to be an important site in Phoenicians, Greeks, Roman, Christians and Muslems periods. You can feel the glory of the Roman empire when you are in the temple. Building such a great place is remarkable even nowadays let alone thousands of years ago with old facilities.

Last October I was here and this is one of the best attractions in Lebanon. Plenty of history, huge structures and a great guide made this trip worth it. Book a tour because the guides are well informed and you get to connect with other tourists as well.

Baalbek is a bit off the beaten path in Lebanon, but I found the trip very worthwhile. The pillars are very high.

A very good reason to visit Baalbek. The mountains in the background only accentuates the beauty of the Roman ruins. Like all other intact or near intact Roman or Greek ruins, it's not hard to figure out why this location was chosen. It's freakin' beautiful!!! Note: There's a terrific museum worth visiting as you exit the ruins. The Heliopolis! If... More

This is a truly impressive site. The Temple is the largest extant Roman temple in the world. Against the backdrop of snow-capped mountains, it is truly remarkable. Enjoy the trip up the Bekaa Valley through "Hezbollah-stan"!

Had a nice tour of the ruins by Mohamed. He was helpful and friendly and was able to answer questions we had. These ruins are impressive and worth the longish trip out of Beirut. However, the views of Mt Lebanon (snow!) and the valley are stunning and worth it.

No words will describe the experience! Must see! And for lunch visit the "Durgham bakery" for famous Baalbeck sfeha (meat pies)

Baalbek is a must-see place in Lebanon. it is located at the north of Bekaa, one-hour & a half out of Beirut, perfect for one day trip to the remains of the most preserved roman temples in the world. Baalbek, with its enormous structures, is one of the finest examples of Imperial Roman architecture. Don't miss to taste the Baalbeki... More

Baalbek is a long way out of Beirut, but it definitely worth visiting the remains of the roman temples, this place is not the easiest to get to, but there are some bus companies and taxis that take you there but not that cheap. This place is stunning, worth having a tour guide show you around who knows their stuff,... More
