Syria, Jordan & Lebanon
Follow in the footsteps of the Phoenicians, the Assyrians, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Turks and the Crusaders. Visit a region where time reaches back in an unbroken thread, century after century.
If you feel history. If you can stand in – say – a Roman amphitheatre with closed eyes and hear the roar of the crowd and the shouts of the gladiators…you should take a tailor-made holiday back to the time of mighty empires, ferocious invaders, ancient civilisations and living archaeology.
Talk to our expert, Nabila Cash, about Syria, Jordan and Lebanon.
One of Nabila’s tailored itineraries will take you back to the dawn of civilisation. To Syria’s amazing treasure trove of ancient cities and biblical sites. From Damascus to Palmyra. From Byzantine churches to Crusader castles and Ummayad palaces. From souks and shops to Narenj in Damsacus that serves the best of Syria’s delightful cuisine.
And then on to Jordan, with its classical history and UNESCO world heritage site Petra – an unbelievable city hewn out of solid rock. And it’s unforgettable Dana Biosphere Reserve.
Or Lebanon. Once the home of Phoenicians, Persians and Assyrians, now the place you’ll unearth ruins rubbing shoulders with vineyards – Nabila recommends the Begaa Valley’s Chateau Musar - plus great cities like Anjar, Byblos and Beirut with its high-energy nightlife and street culture.
