Well, no danger whatsoever but the communication could be a problem sometimes.
Not everybody could speak English & it pays to learn a few basic Arabic words.
When you ask for a place, please let a pen & a paper handy; Ask the locals to write them down in Arabic so that you can show what's written on that piece of paper instead of saying the wrong pronunciations !

It can be very difficult to cross a street in Aleppo. I had been i Lebanon before coming to Aleppo the first time and there cars slowed down if a person had started to cross the street. I soon found out that this was not the case in Syria. The cars don't slow down even though someone has started to cross a street. Be prepared to run!

If you are a girl or a woman and you are visiting the old City parts or central or public places, please don’t forget to ware long jeans and light but covering shirts even if it’s summer time and it’s too hot….
As people there will look at you rudely and you’ll feel yourself as if you’re from another planet…and you don’t need that!!!
But there’s no problem to ware whatever you want when you’re going with your boyfriend or Husband...
But you can’t avoid the rude looks in that case neither.
In the modern City part you can make yourself at home , and ware anything you wish.

Aleppo is a very safe city and there are no dangers to walk around anywhere at any time.
I met many solo female travellers and none of them reported any special hassle as well.
Syrian people are always well educated and very kind with the foreigners.

I've heard much about the beauty of the Al-Jaama al-Kebir... longed to visit it... and when I got there it was under serious restoration. Officially it's possible to go inside the counrtyrd and look around, but the face-lift it's undergoing is very "extreme" and there's really nothing to see except dust and men at work. It's in the middle of the souq, but it's not worth a visit until the restoration (reconstruction) is finished.
