Sidon is a port town and the third largest city in Lebanon, after Beirut and Tripoli. Another Phoenician city, Sidon [or Saida] is a microcosm of life in Southern Lebanon: an old fishing port, a commercial port, an old city beside its newer additions, replete with souks, mosques, and the artifacts left by the Europeans on the Crusades.
