This city, once called the "Paris of the Near East", is a modern, cosmopolitan metropolis: comfortable hotels, nightclubs and shopping boulevards offer every comfort. Take a stroll through the carefully restored old town or take the inclined railway from Harrissa up to the statue of the Virgin Mary, Notre Dame du Liban. From there you will have a wonderful view over the rooftops of Beirut. Walk along the famous waterfront promenade, Corniche Beirut, with its beautiful hotels, to Pigeons' Rock. These two bizarrely shaped cliffs just off the coast are the city's landmark.
