Either as a half-day-trip from Palmyra, or as a stopover on the way back from Palmyra to Hama or Homs, Ar-Rusafa is really worthwhile seeing. It is a byzantine "ghost town" in the middle of the desert, with intact city walls and the ruins of three churches, huge water reservoirs and well-preserved city gates.
