Map: Beirut City

If you are looking for a map of Beirut, Lebanon, then all you need to do is scroll down this page and have a look.

Beirut is the capital and largest city of Lebanon, an Arabic nation in the Middle East, bordering Israel to the south and Syria to the north and east. It has a population of 2.1 million in the metro area, and consists of different ethnic/religious neighbourhoods, including Christian, Muslim, and Druze areas, as well as 4 recognized Palestinian refugee camps.

Beirut can be a difficult city to navigate, because of the traffic and poor public transportation. The more expensive way to get around is to take taxis, some of which are private taxis, and others are shared taxis driving on fixed routes like a bus. And lots of privately owned minibuses operate from various bus stations around the city. Walking is an option within each neighbourhood, though traveling across the city center takes a long time on foot, and there are some neighbourhoods where you may feel less welcome than others.

Beirut is one of the cultural and economic centers of the Arab world, though that status has been harmed by a devastating Lebanese civil war and war with Israel.
