Day 3
Jerash And On To Petra.

Overlook the vast Oval Plaza and Cardo Maximus, the key Roman road. Return to Amman for sightseeing of the huge Roman Amphitheatre and the Citadel Hill. After some free time, continue south to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra, voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.(Buffet Breakfast / Dinner with Wine)

This day is devoted to the beautiful ‘rose-red city, half as old as time’. You enter this lost city through a narrow gorge, the Siq, with walls that rise up to 200 metres. Emerge from the path to see the magnificent Treasury, carved out of solid rock and standing over 40-metres-high. Wind your way through the canyon to explore the Roman Amphitheatre, which once seated 3,000 spectators, and the ancient tombs.(Buffet Breakfast / Dinner)

Follow the King's Highway to visit Shobak, an authentic 12th century crusader fortress, perched on the side of a rocky mountain, standing guard over a barren and desolate land. Admire the towers and Arabic calligraphy on the external walls before discovering the original Crusader chapel, palace complex, and even a set of secret passages! Continue to Mt Nebo, one of the most revered holy sites of Jordan, where Moses stood and saw before him the Promised Land. At Madaba, visit the famous Greek Orthodox Church of St. George with its amazing 6th century mosaic map depicting the entire Holy Land, stretching from Jordan and Palestine in the north, to Egypt in the south. Later, return to the Jordanian capital where you are at leisure.(Buffet Breakfast / Dinner with Wine)

Description

Welcome to a land rich in Arab culture, natural wonders and sites so ancient that by comparison, the Crusader forts guarding the old trade routes are considered recent additions.
