Syria Travel Guide

Roman Theatre Syria

Syria, country located on the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea in south-western Asia. Syria is bounded by Turkey to the north, by Iraq to the east and south-east, by Jordan to the south, and by Lebanon and Israel to the south-west. It has access to the Mediterranean sea on its west coast.

Coastal Syria is a narrow plain, in back of which is a range of coastal mountains, and still farther inland a steppe area. In the east is the Syrian Desert and in the south is the Jebel Druze Range.

This was a safe country to visit until the devastating civil war in 2011. Most visitors took a trip to Syria for a chance to visit Damascus, an ancient city filled with Christian church spires and Muslim minarets or to see dozens of Roman ruins including the legendary Palmyra.
