Package Itinerary

Tyre Founded around 3000 BC, was an important trading Phoenician island city, famous for surviving a 13 year siege by Nebuchadnezzar, and then fell to Alexander the Great who built a causeway connecting Tyre of the mainland. Tyre made its name by discovering and exporting red dye extracted from the murex sea mail which still survives at Tyre’ s shores today.

Places of interest include Hay el Ramel, Alexander’s causeway, the site of the ancient island city with mosaic streets, Roman baths and arena, the remains of a crusader church, a Roman-Byzantine necropolis and the largest Roman hippodrome ever found, built of stone instead of the usual bricks.
