At the moment, Syria is a definite travel adventure, but it is possible to go there and explore as long as it is non-political. The map is quite good, showing the road network comprehensively, and locating many of the ancient ruins. We have included an inset of Damascus, the most ancient city in the world. One day, I hope to publish a proper map of this fascinating city. This map is as good as can be expected, given the current political climate. Input that would improve its usefulness for travellers would be much appreciated.
