Palmyra - walk around the ruins at Palmyra
Walking around the ruins at Palmyra is like taking a step back into historic times. There is so much preserved here, it is easy to imagine you are back in Roman times. The temple of Bel is particularly impressive, but the highlight of the site has to be the Colonnade of the Decumanus, which was once over 1.5km in length. A great site at daytime, but maybe good to go to at night, when it is cooler and when the whole site is transformed and lit by floodlighting.
