Fall into step with the genteel pace of life here. It’s all leisurely strolls among Jardin Botanique Exotique du Val Rahmeh and lazy al fresco dinners of Italian-inspired dishes in the medieval Old Town. If you’re up for a dollop of culture, pop into Musée Jean Cocteau Collection Séverin Wunderman.
