Located on the coast of the Lebanese South, Tyre is a gorgeous city. With a population of 117 000 people, it is Lebanon’s fourth largest city. The city’s population is a mix of Lebanese Shiites, Orthodox Christians, and Palestinians who have settled in this city. With one of the cleanest and clearest beaches in Lebanon, it attracts people from all around the country. Ancient Phoenician ruins are also found in this city, and when visiting them, the beautiful Mediterranean acts as a beautiful backdrop. Tyre is the fourth largest city in Lebanon and houses one of the nation's major ports. A major tourist attraction, it features two major archaeological sites. The Al-Bass Site consists of an extensive necropolis, a three-bay monumental arch, and one of the largest hippodromes ever found, classified as a world heritage site by the UNESCO. The City Site, located on what was originally the Phoenician island city, is a vast district of civic buildings, colonnades, public baths, mosaics, streets, and a rectangular arena.
