Hi Yazanya. Can you recommend some good resturants in Damascus? I'll be going there soon. Thanks!

There are plenty of good places, but not a lot of varieties. My favorites are La Casa, old city (Italian), Gemini (steaks), Qasr oumaween (local in old city, nice setting mediocre food). I don't know what type of food you're looking for, so if you?re looking for something specific let me know.

I hope my reply isn?t too late. If you wish we can meet up for a dinner in one of these places. I?ll be in Syria till end of March.

Are American tourists welcome in Syria?

Hi Elzeth

Antioch
if you mean ancient Antioch ad Orontes
it is called today
Antakya (Hatay) & since 1939 it is a part of Turkey ...

Antioch ad Orontes, founded by Seleucus I Nicator ~300 BC,its population soon reached half a million people.. St. Paul was there

Today there's a small museum with a fantastic collection of MOSAICS, i was lucky enough to visit a few times

Thank you for the reply maxwell. I have recently returned from Jordan and everywhere I went people would thank me for coming. That was the greatest feeling, and it sound like the Syrians are just as nice.
