DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
Our cultural trip today will be towards south Lebanon and Jezzine region to start with the ancient city of Saida.
Saida is mainly a Phoenician city, with many layers of world civilizations passing and having left marks to it. Notably the Romans, crusaders, and Ottomans.
The tour will start with the crusader sea castle, which itself is built on top of a Phoenician castle. Then we will enter the old city with its labyrinth tiny streets, and have the chance to buy traditional soap. Famous Hammam al Jadeed will follow, which is the largest and most significant hammam in Saida. We’ll then discover khan al Franj built by Emir Fakherdin in the 17th century.
Our lunch will follow in the beautiful old city of Saida, tasting the delicious specialty food of the locals.
Famous Sidonian Arabic sweets await us for sure before heading to the mountains.
Our next destination will be Jezzine, the capital of south Lebanon.
There we will have a walking tour in the old town, and enjoy the festive season decoration and ambiance in the village. While walking, we will check out the very well-known handcrafted cutleries of Jezzine.
From a panoramic view, you will catch one of the highest waterfalls in the world, located in Jezzine.
Last but not least, Karam wines will be our final visit for today. It is only winery located in the south region of Lebanon with an altitude as high as 1400 m above sea level.
This old family business produces fine wines, experiments with different international grapes and most importantly uses indigenous grapes that are only found in the Jezzine region.
Keep on exploring!
