Damascus

4.2
Locals claim that the Prophet Muhammad refused to enter Damascus on his journey to Mecca--he wished to enter Paradise only once in his lifetime. A trip to Damascus still takes visitors to a place of myths and legends, an area as rich in culture and history as it is troubled politically and economically. Possibly the world's oldest city, inhabited as long ago as 10,000 BCE, this old urban center feels truly ancient with its labyrinth of narrow alleys, lush courtyards, and humble houses. In a World Heritage-listed city known for its souqs, the best way to experience local culture may very well be just walking the streets and exploring the many traditional eateries, Turkish baths, and hookah cafes. Damascus is in Syria. Use our Syria itinerary site to arrange your visit to Damascus and any other destinations in Syria that take your fancy.
