Lebanon’s second largest city, Tripoli, is a city which derives its unique character by embracing a relaxed lifestyle whilst maintaining its traditional values, creating a stark contrast to the cosmopolitan feel of Beirut. The Tripoli experience incorporates many of the historical wonders of this Northern city. We will visit the old Souks where visitors are known to “feel” the presence of the old souls who once populated the old Hammams, gathered in the beautiful architecture of the mosques and attended the colourful Madrassas. There will be plenty of time to enjoy some local delicacies from the street vendors and listen to stories from some of the locals who are always happy to talk to visitors. Our day then moves to the historic Saint Gilles Citadel, providing the chance to hear more about the history of the area, as well as offering spectacular views and photo opportunities of the entire city of Tripoli. From the Saint Gilles Citadel we will make our last stop of the day at the seaside city of El Mina, where we will wander some of the enchanting, colourful alleyways that provide much of the area’s character, before stopping to visit the old Tripoli Railway Station which has its own special place in Lebanon’s heritage.
