Baalbek, the "City of the Sun" of the ancient world, is home to the most impressive ancient site in Lebanon. From ancient times to the present day, the city has gained fame as a legendary and even mystical place.

This live-streamed online experience will take you to the three Roman Temples that have witnessed periods of the highest prosperity and decline and have undergone many changes without losing their lustre. We will start at the Jupiter Temple, which is the largest of the three, to admire its 20 metre high columns. The Bacchus temple is amongst the best-preserved, as you will see from its well-decorated gate sculpted with Bacchic figures. We will end our tour at the graceful Venus Temple, a class apart in its harmonious form and original layout.

I have been working as a tour guide for more than 20 years and have worn the hat of a tour guide, tour leader, translator and tour organizer. I conduct my tours in an easy and simple way to give my clients the opportunity to feel and enjoy the places and sites. 

I have worked in Turkey as a tour guide as well as taken part in the conference dedicated to Baalbek in Aix-en-Provence (France) in 2018.

I enjoy showing my native city (Baalbek) and my lovely country to our visitors and make them love Lebanon as much as I do.
