Day 3: Amman - Petra

Today we journey on the Kings Highway to Petra, stopping on route at Madaba, Karak and Mt Nebo. Madaba is the most important Christian centre in Jordan; its mosaics, little shops and restaurants offers us gentle respite. A short distance away, we visit Mt Nebo. Sitting on the edge of the East Bank plateau, it is where Moses is said to have seen the Promised Land. Indeed, from the lookout it is possible to view across the valleys to the Dead Sea, Jericho and - on a clear day - the golden cupulas and spires of Jerusalem. We will arrive in Petra in the early evening.
