The cliché runs that you can ski and swim in the sea on the same day in Lebanon, and while that might only be possible in April or May - at a push - this is certainly a country that belies its diminutive size and troubled past. Lebanon is both beautiful and cosmopolitan, and with so much to do in such a small area, it is ideal for a short break. Yes, that troubled past can prove a deterrent for the less adventurous traveller, but thanks to the sheer bloody minded determination of the locals to get their nation back on its feet, this phoenix keeps rising from the flames, and we think it's well worth a visit.

Amelia and Olga are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • There's extraordinary history, wonderful museums and fabulous art, culture and fashion in Beirut
  • The hotels are great, the food even better - and the wine is pretty good, too. Try the outstanding Lebanese wine Chateau Musar, which has produced a vintage every year apart from 1976 and 1984 when the civil war inconveniently halted production
  • Simply because it's just so much fun - everyone loves to live, laugh and party!
