After more than 150 year history, AUB stands forward as a beautiful campus with a nice atmosphere inside the are - well worth a walk around to get away from the bustling city around. The architecture is great and there is an on-site archeological museum.

Amazing just to wander around and having a look at the intellectual part of Beirut! We just walked around for an hour or so before heading to the beach.
