The nice thing of these ruins is the fact that they are located just next to supermodern buildings. You have 2,000 years history enveloped in a block :) Per se, the ruins are not so wow, i wouldn't have visited them if I did not be in the area.
I was not thrilled to see it, it is an ancient place sounded with modern big buildings. Next to it, is a pleasant park but because of the proximity to the Government Palace there were a lot of soldiers and you could not relax.
Very interesting to see these ruins, as surrounding them is also the very old, old and new buildings of Beirut.
The whole thing's been beautifully done as well, with seating and view points and the like. It's just a shame that there are no information boards explaining what you're looking at.
It is all Roman beneath this part of the city attesting to its importance in antiquity. Apart from the baths remains, there are also extensive ruins in an L shape next to the very ancient Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint George. Anyone with an interest in this era will consider these sites must sees.
When seeing the other sites in Beirut it is inevitable that you will pass by the Roman Baths. You just simply look over the railing for a few minutes and move on.
I've been a couple times while downtown just to take a minute and relax. It is very quiet and calming. The lighting comes on just as the sun is going down making it a very tranquil spot. The Map location is wrong and must be updated. It is located near the Souks.
Rather interesting Roman remains, showing clearly behind-the-scenes (actually under-the-floor) constructions. You can't actually climb down among the remains but get a pretty good view from above and there are a couple of benches, too.
