Sightseeing

Day 1 - Arrive Amman
Tread in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, crusading knights and Bedouin tribes who once crossed the length and breadth of Jordan leaving their mark on its mystical desert landscapes. Our springboard to the spellbinding ancient trading history of Jordan is the white stone city of Amman which you will have an opportunity to explore at your leisure after being transferred to your hotel from the airport. Hotel: Landmark


Day 2 - Amman ▶ Jerash ▶ Petra (2 Nights) 
This morning sees us explore the 3rd century Greco-Roman ruins at Jerash, a favourite city of the Roman emperor Hadrian and an important stop on the incense and spice trade route to the Mediterranean. Amble past its soaring Corinthian columns and view its almost intact city walls before returning to the seven hills of Amman.

We join a Local Specialist this afternoon for a sightseeing tour of the 6,000-seater Roman amphitheatre, impressively carved into the northern side of a hill that once served as a graveyard. We'll see Citadel Hill which towers over the city from atop Jabal al-Qala before departing for Petra where we'll dine in our hotel tonight.  Hotel: Petra Guest House Authentic Accommodation


Day 3 - Petra Sightseeing
The enchanting rose-red façades of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, take centre stage today as we admire the archaeological wonder carved into the sheer rock face over 2,000 years ago by the Nabataean people. Imagine silk and spice caravans plying their wares as we enter this mystical trading city through the narrow Siq – flanked by towering cliffs soaring 80 metres high. As we emerge from the path, the stone façade of the Treasury with its ornate decoration looms ahead – the first of many wonders to be explored.


Day 4 - Petra ▶ Amman
We venture deep into this ancient frontier land, following the King's Highway north to Shobak and gaining insights into the day-to-day life of local villagers. Ascend Mount Nebo and view the Promised Land as Moses once did in the Hebrew Bible. Later, view The Kings Way mosaic portrait of the Holy Land, the world's largest mosaic portrait dating back to the 6th century, at Madaba's St. George's Church. Consider extending your stay for two nights at the Dead Sea in the Jordan Rift Valley (see below), or continue to Amman for your final night in Jordan spent at your leisure. As the sun sets on this magical city, listen to the mystical call of the muezzin and reminisce over an enchanting trip into antiquity.  Hotel: Landmark


Day 5 - Depart Amman
This morning, we bid farewell to this extraordinary land. Transfers to Amman airport are available, conditions apply.
