Locals claim that the Prophet Muhammad refused to enter Damascus on his journey to Mecca--he wished to enter Paradise only once in his lifetime.
Go for a jaunt from Damascus to Saydnaya to see Cherubim Patriarchal Monastery about 1 hour away. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Umayyad Mosque, get engrossed in the history at Al Azem Palace (Palace of As'ad, Pasha al-'Azm), take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Qassioun (Jebal Kasioun), and admire the landmark architecture of Sayyida Ruqayya Mausoleum.
