Weave through the narrow streets in the old city or take the dirt roads out to the desert mountains. Fly by the bazaars and stop for coffee or tea when you need to rest. Move at your own pace between historic sites. Create an unforgettable experience as you get lost in one of the oldest cities in the world.

This experience is best in May and September when temperatures are cooler.
