"Go to Palmyra. The site is..." Syria Favorite Tip by jstrudwick

Syria General: 219 reviews and 202 photos

Favorite thing: Go to Palmyra. The site is well preserved and in a stunning location. Visit the Citadel at Alleppo. Also go to a steam bath and have a massage while you're in town. The Crusader Castles are worth visiting too. And of course you must spend time in Damascus, the world's oldest continuously inhabited city.
