Many people associate Lebanon with violence and war after the civil war that tore the country apart between 1975 and 1990. There was also the 2006 July War, between Israel and Lebanon. But those wars and troubled times are long past, and Lebanon is now a beautiful country packed with ancient history and ruins and stunning landscapes.
