Lebanon

Culture & History

Modern Lebanese society is characterized by the diversity of cultures, traditions, and religions.  Most Lebanese people speak in addition to Arabic, English & French. As you walk through the streets of Beirut, you will notice how the mosques built close to churches which reflects the country s religious and architectural legacies – Sunni, Shiia, and Druze Muslims; Maronite, Eastern Orthodox, other Christians; and many others. Locally, each part of the countryside has its own local flavor, with different villages preserving a different culinary, food, artistic, religious, or cultural traditions.

In Lebanon, Hundreds of mosaics from the Roman and Byzantine eras and countless colorful, tiny stones form intricate images of mythological figures, religious deities, and geometric designs have been well-preserved which makes an interesting archeological relic found throughout Lebanon. The country s historical sites, from the Stone Age settlements to Phoenician city-states, from Roman temples to rock-cut Christian hermitages, from Crusader Castles to Mamluke mosques and Ottoman hammams, make from Lebanon a true encyclopedia of ancient and modern world history.


 

Weather

We have to mention that Lebanon is blessed with a beautiful Mediterranean climate and four distinct seasons. The summer (June –September) the season of the clear skies and warm temperatures along the coast, 20-32°C (68-90°F), lure Lebanese and tourists alike to the waters of the Mediterranean. The atmosphere is a mixture of trendy “see and be seen” and utters relaxations. With sun and fun, mountain escapes, and cultural festivals, the summer in Lebanon offers something for everyone.

Fall (October-November) brings crisp, cool weather to the mountains, 5-20°C (40-68°F), but remains pleasantly warm on the coast and in the South, 15-28°C (60-85°F). In fall, it is a good time for apple picking in the North and viewing the harvesting of olives and machinations of olive presses all over the country.

Winter( December to mid-March) is the time for outdoor sports, with six ski resorts catering to skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels, and kilometers of cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails to be explored. Because winter is the rainy season, the mountains get considerable snowfall. Temperatures fall to below 0°C at night and range from -5°C-5°C (25-40°F) during the day. The coast is wet and cool, with temperatures ranging from 10-20°C (50-67°F).

Spring (April-May). As a result of the winter rain and the melting snow, the scenery comes alive with wildflowers, making spring the prime opportunity for hiking Lebanon s mountain trails .Temperatures range from 0-15°C (32-60°F) in the mountains to 15-25°C (58-72°F) along the coast.
