Place to Stay in Palmyra


I will be coming to Palmyra in 2 weeks and was wondering if it is possible to do a day trip from Damascus to Palmyra? If not, is there a good hotel to stay at? Are Tuesdays still a public holiday there?

Doing it as a day trip from Damascus would be too rushed. You should stay there at least one night. The ruins of Palmyra are best seen at sunrise. There are a few reasonable hotels there including the Orient and Ishtar. Ideally you should have at least one and a half days there to see everything.
