We have breakfast at the hotel and head to visit the impressive Greco-Roman city of Jerash. One of the best preserved provincial Roman cities in the world with fortification walls, temples, baths, colonnaded streets, theatres, shops and sophisticated water works. The city remains the live evidence of urban civilization spanning over a period of 9000 years including Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic. Later on a journey south of Amman to visit the Biblical city of Madaba. Once a Moabite frontier town, which continued to remain, inhabited during the Nabatean and Roman periods. Visit to the most famous landmark of the town, The Greek Orthodox Church where the 6th century mosaic map of Israel has been preserved in its original form. With 2 million pieces of coloured stones and a full 25 x 5 meters in its original state – most of which can be still seen today. The map depicts hills, valleys, villages and towns as far as the Nile Delta. Next we visit Mt Nebo where Mosses is believed to be buried. It is the most revered holy site in Jordan and a place of pilgrimage for Christians. Then we drive to Amman to our hotel for dinner and rest.

Day 3:

We have breakfast at the hotel and drive southbound and dedicate the full day exploring the magnificent, mysterious, rock-carved red rose city of Petra or sometimes known as “The Lost City” (9 B.C. to 40 A .D.). On the edge of the Arabian Desert, Petra was the glittering capital of the Nabatean empire of King Aretas IV (9 B.C. to 40 A .D.). Masters of water technology, the Nabataeans provided their city with great tunnel constructions and water chambers. A theatre, modelled on Greek-Roman prototypes, had space for an audience of 4,000. Today, the Palace Tombs of Petra, with the 42-meter-high Hellenistic temple facade on the El- Deir Monastery, are impressive examples of Middle Eastern culture.  The seven-kilometre walk can also be covered in the Nabatean fashion on horseback. We return to Amman for dinner and rest.
