Get in

Bus

During the summer season daily tours are available from Beirut to Baalbeck from most major hotels. The trip takes a little less than 2 hours each way.

It is possible to travel from Homs in Syria to Baalbek by bus. Buses leave from the Karnak or Luxury coach stations in Homs and cross into Lebanon at al-Qa'a, arriving soon thereafter at Baalbek. Cost is about USD$3.

Events

Every summer the Baalbeck International Festivals offers great peformances from local and international artists. In the past peformers ranged from Sting, Vanessa Mae and Phil Collins to plays by the celebrated Lebanese Rahbani brothers.
