  • Everything invites you to remember a city destroy desert bride but fertile environment bavamia environment, beautiful and generous, less effects and fantastic Museum preserves the history of the area and its beauty.

  • Roman colonnade in an open field not as amazing as the benches and stools of their shattered remnants at a roadside House, whose inhabitants have unwittingly become the custodians of the old city under the open sky. And next on the mount-factory, which produces "artifacts": coins, which guide suddenly discovers the tourist trail))).

  • Long, very long column street that is totally worth the walk. If you do a car trip in Syria, this does not deviates too much from the route you need to take in order to touch every landmark  more »

  • Visited in 2010 on a lovely sunny evening, the sun setting over the Roman ruins was quite spiritual. The guys in the ticket tent were great and some other locals we met on motorbikes were great fun - giving us a lift on their bikes to various parts of the ruins - all free of charge. Nothing was too much trouble for the locals. I hope I will be able to go back sometime.
  • Stunning archeological site visited 2009 before the war - hope it survives
  • When I went there I was very excited but when I got there I only saw a MOAB shell
  • History
  • do not expect much but it's still worth a visit
