Syria's second city, situated in the north of the country, boasts an 8000-year-old history. Thus it is the strongest rival of the capital Damascus as to the title of the oldest continuously inhabited city of the world. Thanks to its situation on a boundary position between East and West, Aleppo is considered the trading-town par excellence.

You'll get an insight into the turmoil of the city while walking through the 12 km long suq covered by stone vaults, the longest of the entire East. The tremendous citadel rises above the city - an impressing example of Arabic architecture. It shows traces of former civilizations dating back to the days of the Hittites.

 

In Christian quarter Jdeide, typical old city houses from the Ottoman era were transformed into charming hotels and excellent restaurants. Especially worth-seeing: the National Museum of Aleppo and the Great Ummayyad Mosque.
