Amman's old city walls

Looking through the Siq at the Treasury

Day 2: Petra

Spend the day with your private guide exploring the ancient Nabatean Rose City of Petra - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Access the hidden archaeological treasures of the Rose City on a walk through a narrow, deep siq, where the rocks finally give way to reveal the famous facade of Al-Khazneh (the Treasury). It's also possible to ride a horse through the Siq. Once inside the ancient city, discover tombs, temples, an impressive amphitheatre and a Roman colonnaded street. If you're feeling energetic ascend the hundreds of rock-cut steps to Ad-Deir. Better known as the Monastery, Ad-Deir has a similar facade to that of the Treasury, but is far bigger and the views from the nearby cliff-tops are incredible!

Day 3: Petra - Dead Sea

This morning take a short drive to visit Little Petra and the Baidha Neolithic village, with a classical temple standing guard outside the mini-siq. Although much smaller than Petra, Baidha is crammed to the brim with tombs, temples and houses. En route to the Dead Sea journey over the Heisha mountains to tour Shobak a 12th Century Crusader Castle, before proceeding to Madaba, to see the world’s largest collection of ancient mosaics and visit the St. George Church with its famous 6th Century map of the Holy Land. Continue on to Mt. Nebo, where Moses viewed the Promised Land. Finally descend to the Dead Sea - lowest point on the earth’s surface, arriving at approximately 16.00hrs and check into your hotel.
