What to expect

Start your journey by being picked up from your accommodation in the Dead Sea area and be ready to explore the antiquities of beautiful Petra. The entrance to the city is a breathtaking one kilometer gorge of the Siq you will walk through and where you will see the golden dazzling colors of the rock formations around you. You will witness the monuments carved into the pink rock facades by the Nabateans trader population over 2000 years ago while proving their extraordinary engineering skills as well as the trading ones. You will then admire the temple of Al Khazneh and you will be overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the valley and architectural features. Amongst the beautiful landscape, you can discover the elaborate rock-cut tombs ornated with intricate carvings, or the magnificent Roman-style theater, the sacrificial altars and amazing streets surrounded by colonnades. The Ad Deir Monastery and the panoramic view you can get from there will leave you out of breath. You will also continue learning about Petra's history at Archaeological Museum and Nabataean Museum.
End the day at small traditional souvenir stalls set up by the artisans of Wady Musa or relax at a nearby Bedouin settlement before being dropped off at your hotel.
