Exquisite experience in Aleppo

The historical city of Aleppo is the largest and most populous city in Syria. The city is known to have been inhabited for over 8 millennia, making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Aleppo is considered an endpoint in the historical trade route known as the Silk Road. Although political reasons have made Aleppo lose its position as a key city for trade, it has also led to the old city being well-preserved even in modern times. Aleppo’s main architectural feature is its variety, as the city has been ruled by Romans, Byzantines, Seljuqs, Mamluks, and Ottomans among others, over its long and colorful history. The city hosts a large collection of historical buildings and monuments.
