NABATEAN CITY OF PETRA
Petra is an historical and archaeological marvel. Hidden away in the red-sandstone Mountains of southern Jordan, it is a desolate, lost city that was once a lively hub and a welcome oasis for traders and their caravans. Witness the massive Obelisk Tomb and take a deep breath as you begin your trek on foot through the Siq, the narrow gorge that leads to Petra’s most impressive monument, the Treasury.
Behold, your experience has just begun as we continue to the Street of Facades, the Theater, the Royal Tombs, the Colonnaded Street, the Byzantine Church, the Temple, the Monumental Arch and Qasr El-Bint Faroun. After lunch, visit with the local Bedouins who share their culture, empowering us to better understand these unique people. Into the evening, we gather and sit down to dinner to regale in ancient stories. Return to Petra later this evening. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
