Any attempt to describe the amazing souq's and foods of Damascus would surely do it an injustice… has to be seen to be believed.

Perhaps it’s better to look at the photos.

But just a few of the amazing things we couldn’t resist trying…. sugared almonds, spices piled high, pomegranate juice, ice-cream with pistachios, milk pudding, falafel and shwarma stands, amazing rice with toasted nuts and white grapes……delicious!

And every time we stop to look more closely at something we are given a sample to taste. We could practically eat for free here, and often when we do try to buy something the vendor doesn’t charge us because we’re only buying a small piece to taste.
