Tripoli is the second largest city in Lebanon, yet it’s often overlooked. Maybe not enough light is shed upon the amazing characteristics of this cozy little city.

It’s the perfect destination for tourists who are after that essence of pure and traditional Lebanese style of life and don’t to get down and dirty with the locals.

The hospitality alone is one of many things that make Tripoli a perfect spot for curious and adventurous tourists. Others include (but are not limited to):
