Take a tour of Ruins of Byblos in Byblos, Lebanon – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. It is one of the world's oldest inhabited cities, a place of much history. The city is at least 7,000 years old, when Neolithic people settled here. A true crossroads of history, many people from both the East and the West lived here. Phoenicians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, and Ottomans, all played a major role in Byblos' history. In Old Byblos, many ruins of these great empires remain and can be explored today. A visit to the long-standing port in Byblos is beautiful and yields a great view.
