Baghdad— 7 nights
It's quite possible that a Baghdad holiday isn't on your list of things to do, but despite the city's reputation for turmoil, it still has plenty to offer to a daring traveler.Take a break from Baghdad with a short trip to Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel in Karbala, about 1h 50 min away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at The Iraq Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Armenian Orthodox Church - St Gregory The Illuminator, don't miss a visit to Abu Hanifa Mosque, and get in on the family fun at Zawraa Park.
