Syria Culture & Discovery
A comprehensive tour of Syria that starts in the capital Damascus, with its majestic Umayyad Mosque and vibrant souqs and an excursion to the well kept theatre of Bosra in the south. The Krak des Chevaliers is the most imposing Crusader Castle in the whole region and can not be missed during a trip to Syria. We travel through the country side, via the Dead City of Serjilla to Aleppo, the 2nd city of Syria with the most authentic souk of the whole Middle East. And of course some architectural pearls are visited during the trip: the Citadel of San Simeon, where the stylite Simeon lived in the 4th century; Apamea, with its impressive Cardo and last but not least Palmyra, the queen of the desert and the legendary oasis city, where the Bel Temple, Theatre and tombs are visited and where from the Arab Castle, un unforgettable sunset over the site and region can be watched… But also some more unusual visits, like the convent of Mar Moussa in Nebek, dominating the Syrian Steppe and a climb up by numerous stairs, but housing a remarkable collections of fresco’s of the 11th century can be admired. Or the town of Shahba, with its fabulous collection of 4th century mosaics depicting scenes of Roman life. To make our journey comfortable and to allow an in depth visit, we spend several nights at the same hotel where possible: in Damascus, Aleppo and Palmyra.
