Go back in time wandering through Damascus with its traditional souks, range of Middle Eastern foods and millenia-old architecture.
Syria is blessed with a Mediterranean climate, making Damascus an extremely inviting year-round travel destination.
The Great Mosque of Damascus
The Great Umayyad Mosque is first monumental work of architecture in Islamic history; and it's as impressive today as it was when it was first built in the eighth century.
The Old City
Within walking distance of Four Seasons Hotel Damascus is the old walled city. Wander down its narrow streets and walk past centuries of history: Roman columns, spice-scented souks, mosques and the Christian quarter.
Not to be missed, this former residence of an Ottoman governor is a treasure of Damascene architecture.
