After the breakfast at the hotel, we leave for our daily tour to Baalbek & Anjar. First, we will visit Baalbek, laying 90 km Northeast of Beirut on Bekas Valley, across Lebanon mountains. Dating back about 9.000 years, Baalbek, also known as Heliopolis, was the second largest polytheist center following the capital, Rome. Reflecting the power and magnificence of the empire, the city had its golden days until the legitimization of Christianity by Constantine in the 4th century. The city houses three temples, dedicated to Venus, Jupiter and Bacchus, which stands as the best-preserved Roman temple to date. The Temple of Jupiter, on the other hand, has unfortunately got worn out in time and only 6 of its 54 Corinthian style columns survived. Eight of these columns were used in the construction of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, which was built in 532-537, ordered by Byzantine Empire Justinian. The first excavations of the city were started in 1898 during German Kaiser Wilhelm II upon a permission granted by the Ottoman Empire. Countinuing our journey through Bekas Valley, we leave for Anjar. In this town, today intensely inhabited by the Armenian diaspora, we will visit the old town, the only Umayyad heritage in Lebanon built during the region of Khalifa Al Walid ibn Abdel in the 8th century. After the town tour, we will get back to our hotel. The dinner will be served at a local restaurant. We will spend the night in Beirut.
