Upon arrival at Queen Alia International Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel.
After breakfast, start your day with an excursion to the Roman city of Jerash then proceed to Ajloun Castle (also known as Qal’at Ar-Rabad) which was built in 1184. It’s a fine example of Islamic architecture; the fortress dominated a wide stretch of the northern Jordan Valley and passages to it. After that, visit Umm Qais, a town in northern Jordan near the site of the ancient town of Gadara. It is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Sea of Tiberias and the Golan Heights. Return to Amman for dinner at a local restaurant. (B)(D)
Visit one of the most important archaeological discoveries in modern Jordan, the settlement and region of Bethany (or Bethabara), where John the Baptist lived and baptised. Then, visit historic Mount Nebo, one of the most revered holy sites in Jordan and the place where Moses was buried. Proceed to Madaba, “the City of Mosaics.” The city is best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics. Head toward the “rose red” city of Petra. En-route, visit a Crusader Castle in Kerak, which was the capital of the biblical kingdom of Moab. Perched atop a steep hill, Kerak is a predominantly Christian town dominated by the largest and best preserved of the Crusader castles in the region. (B)
A full day visiting the “rose red” city of Petra, the world wonder, which is Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. Upon arrival, you will take a horseback ride through the Siq, the only access to this city. Visit the Treasury, the Roman Theatre, the Royal Tombs, the Court, Qasr Al Bint and the Church. (B)
Drive to Wadi Rum Desert. Enjoy a two hour 4×4 Bedouin Jeep tour to explore the most attractive spots in Wadi Rum. Later in the afternoon, drive to the Dead Sea, which is the lowest point on earth. Dropping down to more than 400 metres below sea level, it is one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual
landscapes in the world. (B)
A free day at leisure to soak in the Dead Sea. (B)
