This sightseeing includes the National Museum and the Solidère Restoration Project. As you drive to the
National Museum, you pass the Green Line, which was the scene of the heaviest fighting during the civil war.
Looking on both sides of the road, it is possible to see the scars of the war, with many buildings still ruined and
potted with bullet holes.
Following this, you continue to the newly restored city centre to see the results of the Solidère Project. This
multi-million dollar scheme has completely restored the city centre and the result is astounding. There have
also been significant archaeological finds in downtown Beirut, which were discovered when certain buildings that
were beyond repair were pulled down to be rebuilt. The semi-pedestrianised area around Place de l'Etoile is a
pleasant place to end your tour and find somewhere for lunch.
