Lebanon in October

Hello - Any recommended reading before a trip to Beirut in October? Also, do you think a week is enough time to do Beirut and maybe another city? thanks, Beth

Lonely Planet has one of the more recent guides. Week is plenty of time. Beirut itself is easy enough to do in 3 days. THere are no other cities in Lebanon of any significant size so you can add a couple of day trips say via tour bus to see Beiteddinne or the second city - Tripoli in the north. I would not recommend driving, the standard here is appalling unless you are used to similar standards seen in places like Cairo and India. You could also take a bus or taxi to DAmascus in that time.
