Ancient Roman site in Lebanon no longer in ‘no-go’ travel zone

A revision of government travel restrictions for Lebanon has opened up the prospect of trips to one of the world’s largest Roman sites.

The Unesco World Heritage site of Baalbek returned to the travel map following an update by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of its Lebanon travel advice.

The FCO removed advice against travel to some areas of northern and eastern Lebanon.

Visitors to Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley can now once again look forward to exploring a site that is the rival of Jordan’s Petra in its magnificence.
