An hour and a half from Beirut in the heart of the Beqaa Valley stand the ruins of the enormous Roman temple of Jupiter in Baalbeck. We were there on a cool clear day and our group had the Heliopolis complex virtually to ourselves.   
There were no roped off areas, so it was delightful to be a nose length from the many architectural elements literally littering the area.
