‘Historic’ is a word that dsn’t even come close to describing a city that was founded around 312 BC. Petra stands as a testament to man’s ability to create beauty from nothing with 80-metre high red sandstone tunnels and a facade made famous by Indiana Jones. Meals: Breakfast
Day 4: Petra to Wadi Rum via Little Petra

Day 7: Amman to Jerusalem, Israel via Jerash and Ajloun
Observe what life was like when the toga was considered everyday garb and not just fancy dress, at the Roman ruins in Jerash. Discover the spots where Alexander the Great and his posse used to hang, and marvel at the archaic streets, temples, arches, stairs and fountains which are among the best-preserved ruins in the world. For an added hit of history, we make a pit stop to see the 12th-century Ajloun fortress, located high atop of a hill with 360-degree views. Next up, we cross the border into Israel.
