Day 2: Amman city tour – Madaba – Mt. Nebo –  Petra ON (B)
  • Today you will enjoy a city tour in Amman, the capital, a safe, friendly, and modern city. Above the city, the ancient Citadel listens as Amman reveals its past. Known in the Old Testament as Rabbath Ammon and in Greco-Roman times as Philadelphia, you will visit the Amphitheater & Jordan Folklore Museum and the Citadel (The Byzantine Church, The Temple of Hercules and The Umayyad Palace complex).
  • We will then leave Amman and start our journey to Petra. The first stop will be in Madaba, where the St George's Greek Orthodox Church has a famous mosaic on the floor. Made during the 6th century AD, the mosaic shows the pilgrimage routes from the surrounding areas to the Holy Land.
  • Your next visit recalls the story of Moses and his journey to the Promised Land. At Mount Nebo there is a Memorial for Musa (Moses) and a 4th century church which Italian Franciscan priests excavated and restored in 1933.
  • The panoramic view overlooks the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem. Late afternoon arrival in Petra with time to settle into your hotel.
     
Day 3: Petra full day visit & ON (B)
  • Breakfast at the hotel followed by the tour of the Rose Red City of Petra. The city is thought to have been first established in the 6th century BC by Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and laid the foundations of a commercial empire that extended into Syria.
  • Despite successive attempts by the Seleucid king Antigonus, the Roman emperor Pompey and Herod the Great to bring Petra under the control of their respective empires, Petra remained largely in Nabataean hands until around 100 AD, when the Romans diverted to the north the caravan routes that had brought Petra its wealth.
  • It was still inhabited during the Byzantine period, when the former Roman Empire moved its focus east to Constantinople, but declined in importance thereafter.
  • The Crusaders constructed a fort there in the 12th century, but soon withdrew, leaving Petra to the local people until the early 19th century, when it was visited by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. The approach to Petra is unforgettable, made either on foot or horseback through the Outer Siq and then on foot through the Siq itself.
  • The Siq ends in an open space which is dominated by the Treasury, Petra’s most famous building. A local guide will give a brief history of the city. You will also see Pharaoh's Castle, the Triumphal Arch, the Amphitheater and Monastery before returning to your hotel.
  • Evening you will enjoy the magic of Petra by night. The program includes a candle lit visit to the Rose-Red City of Petra. The special aura of the ancient Nabataen trading empire comes to life as you enjoy a stroll through the mysterious Siq of Petra.
  • At The Treasury, music and stories will help you experience Petra as the travel-weary traders of old must have known it. The excursion departs from Petra Visitors Center at 20:30, returning to the Visitors Center around 22:30.
