Arrival in Amman for dinner and overnight: Reception on arrival at the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, assistance with the procedures for entry into the country and departure to the capital. Check-in at the hotel, dinner and overnight.
After breakfast we leave for Jerash, the Pompeii of the East. You enter through the South Monumental Gate and you find yourself inside a real Roman city. We walk in the Oval Square surrounded by columns, we visit the Roman Theater and the Byzantine Churches with the typical mosaic pavement. Walk along the main street of Jerash, called Cardo, and visit the Nymphaeum. You will be amazed by the wonderful acoustics of the theater, the stage for the Jerash music festival that takes place here every year. You will observe how the Romans were able to build the anti-seismic columns of the colonnaded street. After the visit of Jerash, we leave for Ajloun, an Islamic military castle used by Saladin's Islamic troops to protect the region against the Crusaders. We then return to Amman to explore the capital, a city formerly called Rabbat Ammoun; visit The Citadel, the Roman Ruins and the Roman Theater located in the active center of the Old Souq. Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight.
After breakfast we leave for Madaba, where we visit one of the spectacular churches in the world: the Church of St. George with its mosaic floor depicting the Map of Jerusalem. After the visit, we leave for Mount Nebo, the place where Moses is buried. If you are lucky and the sky is clear, you will enjoy an extraordinary view over the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea and Jericho from the other side of the Jordan River. We then continue to the Kings' Route to visit Kerak, the capital of the biblical Kingdom of Maob. Perched atop a steep hill, Kerak is a Christian majoran city, dominated by the largest and best-preserved Crusader castle in the region. It is a typical example of Crusader architecture, with Romanesque stone vaults, numerous corridors and strong doors. Then we continue towards Petra, for dinner and overnight at the hotel.
After breakfast we leave for Petra. There is no complete tour of Jordan without a visit to the capital of the ancient Nabataean kingdom, Petra. The lost city of Petra, carved entirely by man in the pink-red mountains, truly tests the human imagination. The natural riches of the mountains here combine with the culture and architecture of the Nabataeans, who worked their theaters, temples, facades, tombs, monasteries, houses and streets right into the pink rock. No wonder that UNESCO has placed the city on the World Heritage list! You enter Petra by crossing the Siq, a deep and narrow gorge, which leads to the famous Petra monument: al-Khazneh or the Treasury. You can recognize him in the final scene of the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. But the Treasury is only the beginning: continuing the walk, you will see hundreds of buildings carved into the rock and eroded by time with fabulous multicolored walls. After the guided tour of the site, free time for independent visit and return to the hotel for dinner and overnight stay
After breakfast we leave for Little Petra. Unlike Petra, where the Nabataeans lived and buried their dead, Little Petra was designed to house the caravans from Arabia and the East, bound for Syria and Egypt. To allow them a break, after crossing the Wadi Rum, the Nabataeans first dug small caves in the sandstone rock, and then built large ones, due to the huge number of caravaners who stopped there. We then continue towards Wadi Rum, an ancient passageway for caravans which, loaded with precious goods, moved north from the Arabian peninsula to reach the ports of the Mediterranean. Its beauty is characterized by mountains marked by time, by the beds of ancient lakes now dried up and by very high dunes of intense red color. In these places an Italian researcher, Professor Borzatti, found some finds of the oldest known alphabet, the Tamudic, which dates back to 6,000 years ago. There are also numerous engravings and rock paintings carved in the rocks of the famous valley of the moon. Excursion in 4x4 Jeep for 2 hours. Accommodation in the tented camp, dinner and overnight stay under the stars of the Desert
After breakfast, depart north towards the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, 423 meters below sea level. A few hours of free time on the Dead Sea, which is located right on Jordan's western border. The salty water, unusually rich in minerals, muds and thermal mineral springs, are a real cure for the body and the spirit. Finally, continue to Amman. Dinner and overnight at the hotel
After breakfast, free day to dedicate to relaxation, shopping and discovering the capital. Dinner and overnight at Hotel.
After breakfast, transfer to QAIA for your next destination where your memorable tour comes to its end.
