Damascus, Syria. Here is where I will wander ancient streets and think about all the history around me. But I will make friends there among the ladies, and together we will marvel at the architecture and giggle about things beneath our veils and go shopping in the market and barter with the sellers.
Damascus, Syria. Damascus is the capital and the second-largest city of Syria after Aleppo. It is commonly known in Syria as ash-Sham and nicknamed as the City of Jasmine. Founded in the 3rd millennium B.C., Damascus is one of the oldest cities in the Middle East.
Palmyra (/ˌpælˈmaɪrə/; Aramaic: ܬܕܡܘܪܬܐ Tedmurtā ; Arabic: تدمر Tadmor) was an ancient Semitic city in present Homs Governorate, Syria. Archaeological finds date back to the Neolithic, and it was first documented in the early second millennium BC as a caravan stop for travellers crossing the Syrian Desert.
