The Syria of today offers tourists as much a cultural experience as a sightseeing one, where ancient history provides a fascinating backdrop to everyday life on the streets                          





While accommodation can generally be arranged on arrival from November to March, reservations are highly recommended throughout the year. Particularly during exhibitions, up-market hotels in Aleppo and Damascus are often fully booked. Tariffs are the same throughout the year. All rates are subject to a 15 per cent service charge. 


Hotels range from fairly low grade to luxurious 5-star accommodation. The best-quality hotels are found in Damascus, though Aleppo, Homs, Hama, Latakia and Palmyra also have luxury hotels. For further information contact the Ministry of Tourism or the Tourist Information Centre (see Contact Addresses section).


Available in Damascus, Zabadani, Aleppo, Idlib, Dar’a and Bosra. Cités Universitaires offer summer accommodation.


There are official campsites in Aleppo, Latakia, Tartus and Palmyra. Otherwise, camping is permitted near resorts.
