Driving the highway to Saida is smooth and lovely. The Crusades seas castle is where we start our visit, a splendid old sand stones floating fortress protecting the city sea front where lies the old busy souks of Saida. The traditional soap factory, the small shops, the butcher next to the local pastry tiles, the wooden craft street and the “Craque des Chevaliers” will enrich your memories with more surprising involvements in Lebanon’s diversity and cultures…
Driving further more to the South of Lebanon where lies the city of Sour or Tyre, the “Bass” Roman hippodrome, the sea ruins, the fishermen’s port and those restored neighborhoods… what a lovely street walk!
