Petra is a city 245 kilometers from the capital city of Amman, carved in stone more than 2000 years ago in order to dominate the trade silk and spice routes of ancient Arabia. On this tour you will get to know all about the history of this magical place.
Your first stop will be an exceptional breath-taking view of the Monastery, before descending to the Byzantine Church and Qasr el Bint. Walk through Wadi Farasa to see the lion fountain, the garden triclinium, and the roman soldiers tomb. You will enjoy the different stone colors and caves. Witness other monuments such as the 3,000-seater theater and the royal tombs.
Return to the treasury “El - Khazneh”, which is the main monument of Petra. Admire this rose-pink masterpiece, originally built to house priceless treasures and capture it on camera. The tour ends by returning through the “siq”, a narrow path of 1.2 kilometers. As you explore, listen as your guide describes how the Nabateans sculpted the buildings, and learn how they mastered the harsh desert conditions to make their lives here.
Then enjoy some free time before heading back to your accomodation in Amman.
