Why Buy Flights to Mesopotamia?

Mesopotamia is the historical region of Western Asia and specifically refers to the land between the River Tigris and the River Euphrates. The majority of Mesopotamia is in modern-day Iraq, but parts of Syria, Turkey and Kuwait also occupy this region. Mesopotamia used to consist of ancient cities including Washukanni, Ninevah, Hatra, Assur and Nuzi, among several others. Today, the towns/cities that are situated in Mesopotamia are Kuwait City, Basra, Nasiriyah, Al Diwaniyah, Najaf, Karbala, Ramadi, Baghdad, Hillah, Kūt, Amarah, Mosul, Urfa, Mardin and Diyarbakır.

Mesopotamia played a part in many global empires including the Hellenic Empire, the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, the Mongol Empire, the Ottoman Empire and the British Empire. This makes it a great region to explore for history enthusiasts who are passionate about the evolution of ancient civilisations in the Middle East. The climate in the region is semi-arid with temperatures reaching highs of 29°C (85°F). The best time to visit is either in Spring or Autumn when temperatures are cool and comfortable.
