Is it possible in one day? If the bus takes approx 3 hours each way, what is needed for sightseeing in Palmyra? Is there quicker transport? Perhaps even a full day tour with guide/car? Also weather mid-December? Need to pack for really cold weather, or just a padded jacket? Thanks for info.
it,s possible little bit ,
you must leave Damascus to Homs at 05.00 then go from homs to Palmyra at 08.00 and can back from there on 17.00
it will be cold generally degree be about 0 to 5
Yes. We hired a taxi for the day, and walked around the ruins, guidebook in hand. Can't remember what we paid, but (after bargaining) it wasn't a fortune. A little basic Arabic helps.
