When you walk in Aleppo in the old city you really feel like a basha or Sultan, everything you need and don't need is found there, you feel you want to stop at every place, it has tons of stories.

Just a few minutes walk from the citadel, you will get transferred back to the Ottoman period (mid 19th century): spices, faux bijoux, meat, clothes, laurel soaps, sweets, rosaries... etc. Don't miss it

Old city of Aleppo is full of scenes, bars and restaurants. Sometimes I go there with my friends to hangout and take some photographs, Eat and drink. We spend hours there exploring the new places and walking in the Narrow streets.
