Dating back to the Neolithic period, Palmyra once stood as a center of wealth and culture. The city developed a specific atmosphere, combining Arab and Greco-Roman influences in its art and architecture. For many, a tour of Palmyra ranks among the highlights of a trip to Syria and the Middle East in general. Soak in the pinkish-gold temples, funeral towers, and castle that rise in this desert oasis, and try to catch at least one sunset or sunrise from its sandstone walls. The site's popularity means that the surrounding modern town buzzes with pushy local outfits, as well as an economy almost entirely reliant on tourism. Palmyra made world headlines when it suffered looting and partial destruction during the civil war--damage appears to have been less than originally estimated, but land mines and booby traps remain a real danger. Make your own Palmyra vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Syria visit site.
