Visiting Lebanon

In parallel to our conference, Lebanon is just an ideal place for planning extra, informal meetings with your colleagues! To visit Lebanon is to experience a long, vivid, and fascinating history of great civilizations that touched this important Middle Eastern crossroad. An ancient land, Lebanon features varied multicultural aspects, from the energetic, revitalized modern-day Beirut, to diverse and beautiful natural settings, to archaeological spectacles and historical monuments. Above all, you can simply enjoy the welcome of people who are surprisingly pleasant, hospitable, and friendly.

With landscapes that change with seasons, but are always bathed in the warm sun, the daylight rising over Lebanon brings endless opportunities of fun, beach, nature and outdoor activities. Ancient Roman ruins, well-preserved castles, limestone caves, historic Churches and Mosques, delightful Lebanese cuisine, nonstop nightlife, mountainous ski resorts, and world-class hotels, all provide a leisurely Lebanese adventure.

During April, the shiny Lebanese weather is perfect for touristic amusement in the colorful spring, with cooler days, fewer crowds, and scenic natural beauty. It is a great chance to leave all your worries behind, and stroll back into the relaxing wonders of Lebanon!
