Photographer's Note

Apamea is one of the hidden gems of both Syria and the entire Middle East, and should definitely be on the shortlist of the most impressive classical cities existing in the region.

Apamea is especially distinguished for its high walls and the main thoroughfare surrounded by columns with twisted fluting. The street, known as the Cardo Maximus to the Romans, is 1.85 km long and 87 meters wide, running directly from north to south.

Despite its impressive attributes, Apamea is virtually deserted by tourists. On this particular day, the 5 of us who hired a shared taxi to get to the sight were the only ones there.
