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.
Step out of Damascus to go to Maaloula and see Deir Mar Musa El-Habashi, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Umayyad Mosque, take an in-depth tour of Al Azem Palace (Palace of As'ad, Pasha al-'Azm), wander the streets of Old City, and see the interesting displays at The National Museum of Damascus.

In September in Damascus, expect temperatures between 40°C during the day and 19°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
