With just one night in Damascus (we did come back at the end of our tour) what do you do ?

Taxi to the Old City, a quick look at the Citadel and the statue of Saladin, walk down through the Hamidiyeh Souq to the Omayyed mosque, beautiful with the rising moon behind the Jesus minaret, tea at the Naufarah cafe with its famous storyteller, then through the spice souq to the Street Called Straight, just soaking up the atmosphere of the city before settling down to dinner at the Zeitouna Restaurant in its lovely walled garden. To bed at the Al Majed Hotel.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
