Discover Syria's captivating city of Damascus. Walk through the narrow, winding streets of the Old City, where people have lived and worked for centuries. Admire the ornate architecture of the beautiful Umayyad Mosque and stroll through souqs full of trinkets and treasures. Perhaps haggle for a handcrafted souvenir or authentic gift to take back home.
Admire the views over the valley from this perfect model of medieval fortification - Krak des Chevaliers is regarded as one of the greatest castles in the world.
Walk Aleppo's ancient streets filled with some of the most intriguing mosques, churches and houses in Syria. Travel to one of the city's open-air bars or cafes in the evening and perhaps indulge in some flavoursome Middle Eastern meze, topped off with some delicious sweet baklava and a strong coffee.
Travel into Syria's desert to the crumbling ruins of Palmyra. Spend time exploring this archaeological site which features impressive monuments, temples, theatres and well-preserved funerary art.
Drive back to the ancient city of Damascus and use free time to explore Syria's hypnotic capital a little further. Tuck into traditional gastronomic delights by sipping a local brew in a coffee house, dining on Middle Eastern cuisine in a restaurant or sampling some local delicacies from a street cart.
