From Aleppo to Aqaba
On this trip, there is plenty of time to enjoy the ancient & world-famous sites as well as the breathtaking sceneries. We start of the trip in the northern city of Aleppo, with its lively souks and impressing Citadel dominating the city, and visit the Basicilica of St Simeon. Via Apamea, with its long Cardo to Hama, famous for its Noriahs (wooden waterwheels), and its delicious sweets. The Crusaders built the fort of Krak des Chevaliers, visited in depth before travelling out to the desert to reach Palmyra. The queen of the desert, as Palmyra is called, is a huge site with the Bel temple,the theatre, the tombs and the Arab Castle from where a fabulous sunset can be admired. We arrive in the Syrian capital, Damascus, with its old city with the Umayyad Mosque, the Churches of St Paul and Anania and the Azem Palace. We travel further south to Bosra, where people still live in the site and that has one of best kept theatres in the area. Crossing the border into Jordan to the Roman site of Jerash. We take the opportunity to try swimming in the Dead Sea before travelling down the Kings Highway to Petra, site visited in depth during 2 full days. Wadi Rum is disovered by 4x4 and on foot, discovering the dunes, natural bridges and stay camping under the stars. After a well deserved day of ‘dolce farniente’, we drive back to Amman where the trip ends.
