Byblos (Jbeil)

Byblos has become synonim with the world’s oldest continually inhabited towns. Old before the great civilizations of the Middle East were even thought of, archeologists believe that the site has been occupied for at least 7000 years.

Byblos or Jbeil is 36km north of Beirut and about the same distance to the Mzaar ski resort. It’s an unspoiled and picturesque city that used to be a favorite watering hole for the crews if visiting private yachts and people of the Mediterranean jet set.
