Just north of Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, lies the historic municipality of Tripoli. The second largest city of Lebanon, Tripoli was historically a port city and has an advantageous position, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It’s also culturally dense, with mosques, churches, and citadels all around. If you plan your trip to coincide with the weekend before Ash Monday – typically between March and April – you’ll even be able to experience Zambo, the city’s lively, celebratory festival.
With so much to do and so much to see, make yourself at home in any of these Airbnb vacation rentals and see all that Tripoli has to offer for yourself!
This space for two, nestled right in the heart of Tripoli, places most of the city’s places of interest within walking distance. The room itself is comfortable, with a double bed, access to a kitchen, a living room with a television, and several restaurants near the apartment if you’d like to eat out. As for sightseeing, a five-minute walk will take you to the old city, where you can revel in the marvellous architecture, immerse yourself in the city’s history, and explore the souks, markets, and abandoned Turkish bath.
If you walk the other way, you’ll find yourself by the sea. Being in such a prime location, the street below the apartment can be busy at times, so light sleepers are advised to bring a pair of earplugs to ensure an uninterrupted sleep.
