Tripoli, Lebanon

Tripoli is the largest city in the north and the second-largest city in Lebanon. Situated 85 km north of the capital Beirut.

It was founded by the Phoenicians 800 BC.

Modern day Tripoli combines the past and present with many historical structures dating back to the Crusade and Islam periods, still standing intact and inhabited. Particularly famous are the old Souks or “Khans” where tradesmen still trade since thousands of years ago, 5,000 year old Tripoli Castle and one of the oldest ports in the world.

Tripoli is particularly famous for its Middle Eastern desserts and Sweets.
