If you don't visit Aleppo it's a pity for you

Aleppo is famous in Syria not only as the second biggest and important city after Damascus ,but also as the center of trade and the borderline between far east and Europe...also they say it's one of the most ancient and first citys on earth, the history of Aleppo started when history was not able to be written yet!
With it's famous incredible beautiful Citadel ,it's long ancient Souk = old marketplaces, it's old style Arabian houses without ceilings, old great Hamam = old arabian bathrooms
Aleppo is a real treasure...
The white yellow color of the stones in the modern city is unequal ,and makes Aleppo special and beautiful in architectonic .
The extremely tasty Aleppian orient kitchen will make you remember Aleppo for ever .

Aleppo's Great Citadel

The Citadel of Aleppo became the Model of invincible Middle age Fortresses.
Now days a guide always finish the roaming with a tourist with these words: "WHO VISIT ALEPPO,AND DON'T VISIT IT'S CITADEL... HAS'NT VISITED ALEPPO AT ALL!!!"
So please enjoy one of the greatest Citadels on this planet.

Who could ever believe!!!

Do you Believe that from a little cute baby like this one...

    Nice collection of things to do in Aleppo. I think though that San Simeon is not a Citadel but rather a early Christian monastery in ruins.
