Head north to Byblos, a powerful city state before Greek ascendancy. One of the oldest continually inhabited places on earth; it has a fascinating citadel, port and souk. Indeed, the narrow coastal strip boasts nearly all the major centres, so continue north for Tripoli's Islamic monuments and south to Sidon, the oldest Phoenician city, and Tyre, home of a superb Roman Hippodrome.

The country's spine of mountains are home to UNESCO listed Qadisha Valley where cave chapels, hermitages and monasteries are cut into the rock walls. Nearby the Cedar Forest boasts some of the remaining 400 trees from forests once considered the ancient world's most valuable shipbuilding material - several are over 1,500 years old.

Travel east through the fertile Beqaa Valley, centre of Lebanon's wine industry - Never tried a tipple? You're missing out - and you reach Baalbeck's astounding complex, another World Heritage site (tip: you won't regret taking a wide angle lenses to its Great Court).

It's a dazzling mix in so small a country - and with A&K it's all possible.
