Palmyra

Approaching Palmyra by road, through the Syrian desert, is something you won't easily forget. You turn a a corner and you suddenly see a huge expanse of columns and arches in the middle of a green oasis.

Palmyra is without a doubt the most important archaeological attraction in Syria and one of the best in the whole Middle East. It is a sight you can't afford to skip.

For centuries, Palmyra was an important and wealthy caravan stop on the Silk Route between Europe and the Orient. The city is also famous for its legendary queen Zenobia who conquered all of Syria and parts of Egypt and Asia Minor before falling to the Romans in AD 272.
