Publisher: Bradt Travel Guide Place of Publication: Connecticut Date of Publication: 2006 Author: Darke, Diana

This ambitious new Bradt guide aims to promote a responsible, non-intrusive kind of tourism by offering visitors more than mere descriptions of sites, hotels and restaurants, stimulating a genuine interest and understanding of the people and their role in modern day Syria. The country possesses some of the most impressive historical sites in the Mediterranean. Damascus and the surrounding area are covered in detail with the Roman caravan city of Palmyra and the Crusader castle of Crac des Chevaliers being just two of the attractions featured in the guide.
