Rampant growth aside, the town of Jounieh still clings to some vestiges of its easygoing past which are worth a wander while passing through town. Take a ride on the télphérique cable car to the Our Lady of Lebanon shrine for a sweeping view of what is considered to be one of the nicest bays in Lebanon. Or, to feel the energy of street side commerce, amble through the traditional stone souk set down by the ferry port to haggle with merchants like it’s the Jounieh of old. Art lovers and history buffs can often be found silently perusing the halls of the Lebanese Heritage Museum, the permanent home of Lebanese artifacts dating to the time of the Phoenicians, and if the perfect day in Jounieh involves watching the sunset from a seaside café with an evening coffee or a cold drink, there are sufficient places in town designed for doing just that.
