The impressive mosaic floor of the St. Stephen Church features medallions commemorating all the early Christian pilgrimage sites of the region, and the extensive ruins also include one of the area’s earliest Stylite towers. You’ll make a late afternoon stop at the Shobak Crusader Castle (Mont Real) en route to Petra for the night. Why not include a Petra by Night ticket from our enhance options.
Begin the day with a walk through the mysterious mile-long Siq, the narrow gorge with towering sandstone walls which leads into the ancient capital city of the Nabatean trading empire. Explore the Khazneh (the temple of Indiana Jones fame), Theater, Colonnaded Street and Museum. After lunch, climb to ad-Deir (the Monastery), Petra’s largest carved façade. In the evening, why not try your hand at our Petra Kitchen enhance option.
Leaving Petra, we take a drive through the busy market town of Karak under the towering shadows of the Karak Crusader Castle.
