Aleppo Mini Guide

Who Travels to Aleppo?
Current guidance from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office tells you not to visit the city because of heavy fighting between rebels and the Syrian government. When things settle more, it’s still advisable to check the FCO website before booking. In peaceful times, the city attracts many travellers from across the border in Turkey who want to visit one of the Middle East’s oldest and most important cities. You’ll get a true experience of the Arab world there and usually an inquisitive but hospitable welcome.

View of Aleppo

How Easy is it to get to Aleppo?
At the moment, flights may be cancelled at a moment’s notice if there is any potential danger to aircraft and passengers. The safest way to enter the city is to fly into Gaziantep Airport in Turkey and cross the border. Gaziantep has flights from Frankfurt in Europe or you can connect in Istanbul if more convenient. If you use Aleppo Airport, there are flights from Cairo which can form a useful hub for onward journeys to Aleppo.

Citadel of Aleppo

What Should I do in Aleppo?
If you have the chance, visit the citadel which has guarded the city for centuries. It’s full of maze-like corridors and passages leading out onto soaring views – simply amazing!
A trip to Aleppo wouldn’t be the same without a visit to the souk. Renowned for clothes, you’ll see many locals buying their wardrobes there as well as looking for the ornate gold that is unique to Aleppo.

Finally, St Simeon’s Basilica makes for an interesting few hours. A place of pilgrimage for Syria’s Christians, it has cool, peaceful and very beautiful gardens.

Currently it’s inadvisable to visit the city because of civil war but when the conflict dies down, a hire car in Aleppo opens up many opportunities to get a feeling for this atmospheric city.

At Rhino Car Hire we can help you to get the best deal on Aleppo car hire, not just the lowest prices but also the best all round package that will include a comprehensive range of insurance cover to ensure you and your hire car are well protected. We can offer a wide range of vehicles for rent in Aleppo but would recommend that you choose a 4 x 4 as the roads in and around the city leave a lot to be desired.
