Historic Sites Close on Tuesdays?

Have picked up on another thread, in a Post by "Amagrib" that Historic sites close on Tuesdays.

I have two days free in Damascus, a Tuesday & a Wednesday.

I was thinking of going to Bosra/Izra on one day & Sydnaya/Maalula on the other.

Which would be best to go on the Tuesday, if it is a closed day?

EastofEngland, Generally speaking historical sites close on Tuesdays. However it is ignored for some remote sites like Krak des Chevaliers , Salahiddin’s and Palmyra on the account of their popularity as tourist destinations But I think Bosra Closes! So in your case, my advise to you is to do:

Sydnaya/Maalula on Tuesday

Bosra/Izraa on Wedenesday.
