Damascus
Locals claim that the Prophet Muhammad refused to enter Damascus on his journey to Mecca--he wished to enter Paradise only once in his lifetime.
Go for a jaunt from Damascus to Saydnaya to see Cherubim Patriarchal Monastery about 1 hour away. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Umayyad Mosque, don't miss a visit to Souq al-Hamidiyyeh, admire the striking features of Khan Asaad Basha, and examine the collection at The National Museum of Damascus.
