Petra

Petra

Includes: BreakfastDinner
After breakfast, pick up to visit Petra, the capital of the ancient Nabatean kingdom. The long-lost city of Petra, carved entirely by man into the rose-red sandstone rocks, puts your imagination to the test. The natural richness of the mountainous area combines in a superb way with the refined culture and massive architecture of the Nabateans, who carved their theatres, temples, façades, tombs, monasteries, houses and roads entirely the rose-red sandstone rocks. No wonder UNESCO placed Petra on its World Heritage List. One enters Petra by passing the Siq, a deep and narrow gorge, at the end of which all of a sudden dramatically appears the most famous monument in Petra: al-Khazneh or the Treasury. Maybe you will recognize it as the stage of the final sequence of the movie 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'. But the Treasury is just the start. Walking and climbing in Petra hundreds of buildings carved in stone and eroded through the centuries into fabulous multi-colored walls will be revealed to you. Back to hotel in Petra for dinner and overnight.

Petra - Little Petra - Wadi Rum - Dead Sea

Includes: BreakfastDinner
After breakfast, drive to Little Petra: Siq el-Barid, located close to the main site. You can walk through 8,000 year old excavated stone age village sat Beidah. This is Petra in miniature with a modest gorge but wonderful rock-cut temples, caves and multi-colored rock faces and, being less-visited, it has an atmosphere all of its own. Continue the drive to Wadi Rum, the valley of the moon according to Lawrence of Arabia. Uniquely shaped massive mountains rise vertically out of the pink desert sand, which separate one dark mass from another in magnificent desert scenery of strange breathtaking beauty, with towering cliffs of weathered stone. The faces of the sheer rock cliffs have been eroded by the wind into faces of men, animals and monsters. Here you will have the opportunity to experience of the Jeep tour 4x4 for 2 hours.
