Once you are in Baalbeck it only takes two hours drive to be in Damascus.

Although the two countries share many cultures every city  has its  own feeling and its own characteristics which differentiate it from any other place.

Syria is often described as the largest small country in the world because of its wealth of ancient civilization, it witnessed a long succession of historic dynasties: Hellenistic conquerors founded the cities of Latakia and Apamea, the nomadic Nabateans from Petra settled in the south, imperial Romans established their Provincial Arabia, and the Byzantines left a legacy of basilicas throughout the land.

We assure you a trip for these two countries will be equivalent to hundreds trips over the world due to its diversity.
