Alep Travel guide
Alep : Michelin's recommendations
For a long time, Aleppo was the economic nexus between east and west, a role it lost in the early 19C on account of earthquakes and the decline of the Ottoman Empire... From this glorious past, the city – today a bustling commercial and intellectual hub – retains lively souks, rich palaces and its spirit of tolerance, as demonstrated when it took in Armenian refugees in the early 20C. Aleppo is also justly proud to have an old Muslim citadel and an inspiring national museum.
