“Nice view”

Ranked #7 of 41 things to do in Damascus
Attraction details
Reviewed May 10, 2009

a wonderful view of the etire city..same view that havent changed for thousands of years..was charming at the sunset hour..
bargain the cab driver well before you go..you can spend an hour up there watching the city lights coming to life in the early evening, and make sure not to eat there in the overpriced restaurants..
this mountain is said to contain many caves where pophets and saints escaped persecution.

As I mentioned in previous review we went to one of the restaurants at top of mountain to watch the sunset. It was a nice view but our evening was spoiled as the restaurant was average food and service and the taxi ripped us off by saying he would wait and take us back to the hotel.
I recommend going just for a drink and to see the view and the monument to the unkown soldier at the bottom.
