Description

This immersive audio tour is designed for history enthusiasts and urban explorers intrigued by the scars and tales of a once divided city. It follows a poignant trail through Beirut, a vibrant metropolis that bears the marks of its turbulent history. Participants will travel along the invisible 'Green Line', a boundary that for 15 years cleaved Beirut into East and West during the Lebanese civil war, and venture through neighborhoods where the echoes of the past meet the pulse of present-day life. The journey begins at the contemplative Samir Kassir Square and ends at the iconic National Museum, covering significant landmarks like the Cinema Rivoli site and Martyrs' Square. Along the route, travelers can witness the stark contrasts between war-marked edifices and modern reconstruction, offering a narrative of resilience and renewal. Travelers will immerse themselves in the city's transformation, from sites commemorating the voices silenced by war to modern hubs of innovation like the Berytech Building. Culminating at the storied National Museum, this tour promises a profound connection with Beirut's soul, one that's carved from both its strife-ridden past and its ambitious strides toward the future. HOW IS THE TOUR GOING — Stay flexible: join the tour whenever you want and explore the sights as long as you like. — Enjoy the tour even offline: all audio tours are tested for high quality and easy navigation.
