Embark on the odyssey of all odysseys as you trace the ancient paths that converge on the fabled “road to Damascus,” a route steeped in history, spirituality, and cultural exchange, as you traverse Bilad al Sham region, following in the footsteps of traders, pilgrims, and explorers, you’ll encounter a tapestry of civilisations woven together by centuries of exchange and interaction. From the bustling streets of Beirut to the timeless ruins of Petra, and from the sacred sites of Jerusalem to the vibrant markets of Damascus, each city along the route holds its own allure and significance. The famous saying that “all roads lead to Rome” might very well have been said about the streets of Damascus. Just as Rome was considered the pinnacle of civilisation in the ancient world, Damascus served as a central hub, with roads figuratively leading in and out of the city since the earliest times. The ‘Road to Damascus’ is not merely a physical journey; it’s a phrase that symbolises a profound transformation, a metaphorical passage of self-discovery and enlightenment. Just as Saul experienced a dramatic conversion on this path, travellers on this odyssey are bound to undergo their own spiritual awakening, immersed in the rich tapestry of history, culture, and faith that defines Bilad al Sham.
