beer : 75 £ (1.30€)

One hour of Internet: 50 £ (90 cents)

Others:

Both transports and entrance to touristic sites are cheap. As usual bars are more expensive, and you will pay an extra for service, be careful. Chicha cost 100 to 200 £ (1.80 to 3.5 €). Please, try the Bekdach ice-cream, one of the best of Middle East, in Souq Al Hamidiyya.

You can stay at Damascus for less than 15 euros per day.
