Luxury Travel In Syria
It is impossible to ignore the fact that Syria, part of the “cradle of civilization” that also includes Lebanon and Jordan, is undergoing a remarkable political and historical transformation. As rapprochement and economic development continue in the region, Syria is welcoming travelers to experience her historic and geographic wonders.
Absolute Travel’s Syria tours mean strolling the streets of Damascus, which was established between 10,000 and 8,000 B.C. and is credited with being the oldest continually inhabited major city in the world. Here you spend your luxury Syria vacation relishing in what is considered by many to be the best shopping in the Middle East as you sip on fresh orange juice from one of the many juice stalls that dot the city’s streets. We recommend visiting the Umayyad Mosque, one of the largest and oldest mosques in the world and the fourth-holiest place in Islam; Azem Palace, an excellent example of traditional Damascene architecture; and the Chapel of Saint Paul to see the window from which disciples lowered St. Paul so he could escape those who sought to kill him, as described in the Bible; and of course, shopping in the city’s buzzing souqs.
We recommend venturing outside of the city during your luxury travel in Syria to be further enchanted by the region’s historic and geographic wonders. These ancient lands, which have captivated pilgrims and travelers for centuries, will exceed even the most discerning traveler’s expectations. Many Syria private luxury travel tours include a stop at the ancient city of Aleppo, which was once the last stop on the famed Silk Road. Here, your Syria tour will bring you to the resplendent Citadel of Aleppo, which rises above the suqahs, mosques and madrasas of the old walled city and is a testament to the strength of the Arab military in the 12th century.
Beyond historical sites, Syria has so much to offer: outdoor enthusiasts will also find beautiful natural riches to explore in Syria, like hiking opportunities near Saydeh Mountain. Foodies will revel in the exquisite cuisine of the country, and those seeking to bring home some authentic keepsakes will marvel at the shopping in the country’s many bazaars.
Private luxury travel to Syria is a mesmerizing experience, and Absolute Travel can give you peace of mind that every single detail has been addressed, leaving you to relax and take in the breathtaking scenery, rich traditions and wonderful people that will make your luxury travel in Syria an unforgettable experience.
