Subsequently you will be able to explore this fantastic place carved into the rock thousands of years ago.
Jerash is one of the best kept secrets – just an hour from the country’s capital, Amman. It is one of the largest and best preserved Roman sites. To this day, its paved and colonnaded streets, hilltop temples and impressive theatres remain in exceptional condition. From here journey south along the scenic King’s Highway, visit the mosaics of Madaba and the impressive crusader castle of Karak.
Thereafter we continue south to Petra, often desribed as the eighth wonder of the ancient world. Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for its size and beauty until you see it for yourself. Undoubtedly the highlight of any trip is the ‘Rose Red City’ of Petra. With its stone-cut architecture behind a small fissure in the mountains, is simply unmissable.
