Syria - Damascus - Hama - Aleppo Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I am planning to travel independently in Syria. I would like to vist Damscus and Aleppo and the following sights:- Hama, Palmyra and Crac de Cavaliers. What is the best way to do this using a combination of public transport, shared taxis and a car and driver?

Here's what I have in mind.

Day 1

Arrive Damascus

Day 2 and Day 3

Damascus

Day 4

Travel to Hama

Day 5

Visit Crac de Cavaliers and Palmyra

Day 6

Hama to Aleppo

Day 7

Aleppo

Day 8

Depart

Is this doable? Alternatively, I could travel to Palmyra and Crac de Cavaliers from Damascus (I know this will be a very very long day) and then travel to Aleppo and skip Hama (unless, I can figure out how to travel from Damascus to Aleppo in one day and sightseeing in Hama).

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
