The city was also once the capital of the Crusader County of Tripoli and the provincial capital of the Ottoman Eyalet (state) of Tripoli; we will come across some of the traces that remain of these periods too.

Tyre Ruins & Seaside - 24 June 2017

Tyre صور , “ The Mother of Europa”, “The Queen of the Seas”, and the famous island desired for so long by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar as well as Alexander the Great, is our next destination.

Our guide will be Elissar Baalbaki whose soul fits well with my tours’ approach, concept and spirit. Elissar is passionate about Tyre and has been guiding tourists for almost 18 years. She will share with you her knowledge and love for this city during this day trip to the south of our beautiful coast. 

Tyre’s history goes back to the third millenium (B.C.) as a Phoenician city state on the southern Canaanite coast, yet nowadays it is a city famous for its rich Roman/ Byzantine ruins. Therefore our visit will begin at the Al Bass Site where we will explore the Necropolis, pass under the famous Tyrian Archway and continue our discovery to the Grand Hippodrome one of the largest of the Roman period. 

The second part of our visit focuses on the Maritime site with its Roman Baths, Palaestras, markets, and streets paved with mosaic; then we will end our tour with a chilled walk around the colorful Christian neighborhood. 

And finally, lunch will be served at Jamal area by the clear sea of Tyre where you can have a refreshing relaxing swim while waiting for your food ;)
