Syria is an ancient land steeped in a rich, vital history. As the cradle of civilization, a meeting place of the world's three great monotheistic religions and a crossroads for ancient trade routes, the modern traveler can still feel echoes of the past.

A journey through Syria is a journey through time. Stroll through Damascus, the oldest inhabited city in the world, visiting the impressive Ommayad Mosque. Climb into the hills of Ma'aloula where the houses cling to the mountainside and where the local people speak Aramaic - the language spoken by Christ. Explore Crusader Castles and ancient fortresses. Wander through the fabled city of Aleppo with its centuries-old souqs, castles and museums - a living testimony to the importance of Syria as a stop on the famed Silk Road. Stand in awe in the oasis city of Palmyra, once referred to as the "Bride of the Desert" and home to the historic fortress-oasis of Queen Zenobia.
