Tyre And Beirut City Tour

Tyre : 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. Tomb of Hiram, King of Tyre, is only a few kilometers away and dates back to 936 BC.

Cana Al Jaleel : Cana el Jaleel The site of Christ first miracle and Lebanon’s newest archaeological site. Rock carvings of Christ and his disciples have led to the sacred cave hideout where it is believed that Christ and his followers visited frequently. Near the sanctuary of Jaleel, a Canaanite prophet, six large stone basins were found. It is believed that these are the same basins Christ used to turn the water into wine.
