Roman Ruins - Jerash, Bosra, Palmyra, Baalbeck, etc.

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Egypt in 2009. I would also like to visit some neighbouring countries, especially Jordan, and perhaps Syria or Lebanon. I know many people will start the "Oh, you're going to the Middle East, are you crazy" rant. I've heard alot of this since I started planning the trip. And, yes, I'm going [to the Middle East]!!!!!!!!

I would fodorites who have been to these sites to share their experiences. I have been to Rome, Pompeii and Ephesus. I get the impression most of the Roman Ruins in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon will be similar. Which ones, if any are worth visiting, or am I just wasting my time seeing thing which are similar to places I've already visited?

Thanks in advance.
