Tour overview:
A city as old as time, Petra is considered one of the greatest wonders ever created by Man. A vast, unique city, carved into sheer rock, Petra has a recorded history more than 2000 years old. There are hundreds of elaborate rock-cut tombs with intricate carvings, a massive Nabataean-built Roman-style theater and two world-class museums.

Day 1 - Arrive Amman
Arrive to Amman, Jordan, where you are met and escorted to your hotel. (D)

Day 2 - Amman / Madaba / Mt. Nebo / Kerak / Petra
Travel to Petra via Madaba, Mt. Nebo and Kerak. Some of the world’s finest Byzantine mosaics are found in Madaba, as is the oldest known map of the Holy Land. Mt. Nebo, thought to be the burial site of Moses, boasts a splendid view of the Dead Sea. Visit Kerak’s massive Crusader Castle, built on a plateau 3,400 feet above sea level. This famous castle lies in the biblical land of Moab and was a Moabite stronghold long before the Crusaders built the castle for which it is famous today. (BLD)

Day 3 – Petra / Amman
Full day to explore the legendary rose-red city of Petra. Petra is the legacy of the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled in southern Jordan more than 2,000 years ago. Most of the 800 monuments in Petra are carved out of solid rock. See the spectacular Treasury, the 8,000-seat amphitheater, the Temple of the Winged Lions and other monuments. Later, return to Amman.
