No holiday in Jordan would be complete without a visit to the remarkable rose city of Petra, which was once the thriving capital of the Nabataean empire. Nestled in a secluded valley surrounded by rugged mountains and a lunar-like landscape of rock formations, Petra was left deserted and hidden from the world for hundreds of years. After being rediscovered in the 1800s, the lost city of Petra is now not only Jordan’s leading tourist attraction, it’s also one of the world’s most incredible archaeological sites, and was recently voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. See why Petra made the final list with our range of day tours, ready to book online in an instant.
