Travel To Syria This Summer And Discover Beautiful Damascus

Featured in Forbes, The Telegraph and Le Monde, Rocky Road Travel takes you to the kind of places most people never get to see. 

We have exciting, illuminating tours all over the world, including in Syria, a country which is home to its capital Damascus, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.

This city is of high historical significance, since it’s been a centre of civilization for thousands of years. Over time, it’s been conquered and ruled by many different empires and civilisations, from the Assyrians, Persians and Greeks, to the Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and Ottomans.

Famous for being a cultural hub in the Middle East, Damascus is known for its bustling markets and beautiful architecture. It also has a diverse population, which is made up of many different ethnic and religious groups.

Our tours include day trips to The Old City of Damascus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here you will find stunning, well-preserved mediaeval architecture, like the Umayyad Mosque: one of the largest and oldest mosques in the world.

Damascus has a rich cultural and artistic heritage, with traditional crafts such as weaving, pottery, and metalwork being practised for centuries. The city has also been a centre for literature, music, and traditional storytelling.

Despite the challenges it has faced, Damascus continues to develop and modernise. During our May tour, we take you to major sites in not only Damascus but Homs, Aleppo, Palmyra and more. This tour has five people maximum, so you can easily become acquainted with our tour guides.
