Aley ( _ar. عاليه) is a district ("qadaa") in Mount Lebanon, Lebanon, to the south-east of the Lebanon's capital Beirut. The capital is Aley. Aley city was previously known as the "bride of the summers" during the 1960 and 70s, when Aley and neighboring Bhamdune were attractive tourist locations for Gulf tourists and Lebanese emigres.

During the 1975-1990 Civil War in Lebanon, Aley witnessed several battles around its environs.
