Beirut Cruises

Beirut or Bayrat (ancient Beyrtus) is capital and largest city of Lebanon, located on the the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Once a famous port and as recently as the 1970s a banking and cultural centre for the Middle East, Beirut was devastated by civil war and successive Syrian and Israeli occupation between 1975 and 1991. Currently the city is in the process of reconstruction, though it has a long way to go to recapture its past glories. Traditional Beirut exists on a peninsula which projects slightly west into the Mediterranean, and is contained by the Lebanon Mountains that rise to the east.
