Day 2
Jerash & Ajloun | Dynamic Ancient City & Stunning Fortress

Explore the ancient city of Jerash, considered the “Pompeii of the Middle East” for its long chain of human occupation and remains from epic chapters of history, including Neolithic, Umayyad and Greco-Roman times. It stands today as one of the best-preserved cities of the Roman Empire. After your tour and lunch at a local Lebanese restaurant, drive to Ajloun to wander its mesmerizing hilltop castle. Originally built in 1185 to oppose the crusader castles of Kerak and Shobak, the fortress was later enlarged by the Mameluks and conquered by the Mongols. Return to Amman.

Day 3
Madaba | Holy Lands & Sacred Scenery

Begin the day with a tour of Amman, exploring its Citadel with gorgeous views over the city, the well-preserved Roman Theater and the beautiful Jordan Museum, which houses original Dead Sea Scrolls; you also stroll the bazaars and gold market. Continue to Mount Nebo, where the Bible says Moses glimpsed the Promised Land — which he would never enter — and spent his final days. Following lunch, drive to Madaba, the “City of Mosaics” known for its wealth of Byzantine mosaics, to see its vivid sixth-century map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land; comprised of two million pieces of colored stone, it depicts villages as far away as the Nile Delta. Drive to Petra.

Spend a full day exploring the “Rose-Red City” of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site sculpted from a mountain range by the Nabataeans in the third century BC. Begin with an optional horse ride to the entrance of the old city, and then explore Petra on foot to see its most incredible monuments. Major sites include the iconic Treasury and Temple of Winged Lions as well as the city’s baths, markets, storerooms and tombs.

After breakfast, drive to Al Beidha, better known as Little Petra, a smaller continuation of the main city once inhabited by the Nabataeans, hidden away in the center of the mountain. Believed to have once been a trading post and supply hub, Little Petra is unique with its small siq (canyon-like passage) and houses and communal gathering places carved into the cliff walls. Continue on to the Dead Sea, where you check into your hotel.
