  The harbour in Sour (Tyre)
by MalenaN

Sour is an old town about 80 km south of Beyrouth. The small harbour is picturesque with small fishingboats and a few cafés. Nearby there is a small souq.
In Sour there are several archaeological sites. Al-Mina lies beautiful by the sea with a colonaded road. At al-Bass you will find the best preserved Roman hippodrome in the world (it's 480 m long).
Admission is 5000 LL to both sites.
To go to Sour from Beyrouth you take a bus from Cola station to Saida. In Saida you change buses. They are frequent and the price depends on the kind of bus. Beyrouth - Saida costs between 750 LL and 1500 LL, the same for Saida - Sour.
