The ancient Nabatean city of Petra was recently voted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and in 1985, Petra was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. Your visit will begin by enjoying a walk or a short horse ride from Petra’s main entrance to the entrance of the old city through the “Siq”, which is a 1210 meters long narrow canyon. As you reach the end of the Siq, the first and famous Treasury monument of Petra “Al Khazneh” will slowly comes into view. The Nabateans carved their monumental tombs, palaces, temples and treasury from the desert’s natural rose-colored rocks and sandstones. Indulge yourself and allow our professional guide to walk you through the architectural and spiritual wonders of this majestic place explaining every detail.
Overnight stay in Petra.
Day 4: Petra – Little Petra, ‘Al-Beidha’ – Wadi Rum – Amman
After breakfast, you will take a short 10 minutes drive to visit Little Petra, ‘Al-Beidha’ which is an important suburb of the City of Petra. You will enter the site through a narrow gorge called Siq al-Barid, which is 350 meters long with three wider areas inside. Like in Petra, buildings have been carved into the sandstone, used as residences, storages and tombs, with water channels and cisterns. In one of the buildings, you can find the remains of painted frescoes with birds, grapes and flowers, dating back to the 1st century AD.
You will then continue to Jordan’s vast and echoing desert “Wadi Rum” for a 4x4 jeep ride. With its "moonscape" of ancient valleys and towering sandstone mountains rising out of the sand, Wadi Rum is also home to several Bedouin tribes who live in scattered camps throughout the area. Wadi Rum is probably best known because of its connection with the enigmatic British officer T.E. Lawrence, who was based here during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917-18. Much of David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia was filmed in Wadi Rum.
