Extension Details

 

Petra, Jordan

Post-Trip, 3 Days

Discover Jordan’s treasures on a three-day post-trip extension. Immerse yourself in the wonder and mystery of ancient Petra, and delve into elaborate buildings and tombs carved into red-rose cliffs. On excursions to Jerash and Wadi Rum, explore spectacular Roman ruins and the iconic desert valley made famous in the film Lawrence of Arabia. Then cap off your journey with a festive evening in Jordan’s capital city.

Itinerary - 3 Days

Day 1 — Eilat/Wadi Rum/Petra, Jordan

Fly from Tel Aviv to Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city, situated on the sparkling Red Sea. Spend the afternoon exploring this idyllic resort town, and go swimming and snorkeling from sun-drenched beaches fringed with coral reefs. Later, a short drive through the Wadi Arabah takes us across the border into Jordan. This afternoon, explore the lunar-like landscape of Wadi Rum, where T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia) stayed with Bedouin friends and allies during World War I. Discover epic sand dunes and rose-tinted mountains where Bedouin tribes still make camp. Continue to our hotel at Petra, located just a few steps from this UNESCO World Heritage site.

Day 2 — Petra

Spend a full day exploring Petra, the legendary city of the Nabataean people. Hidden in deep canyons south of the Dead Sea, this remarkable site was founded more than 2,400 years ago. Enter the ancient city through its primary entrance, known as the Siq, a narrow chasm between naturally sculpted cliffs. This passageway, which could have been easily defended against attack by an invading army, ends at the glorious sight of the world-famous Treasury. Go on a guided visit of the expansive site, where hundreds of monuments were rediscovered only in 1812. Then enjoy time on your own to explore the Royal Tombs or the Monastery.

Day 3 — Jerash/Amman

This morning travel north on the historic King’s Highway and visit one of the best-preserved cities of the Roman Empire, Jerash, called the "Pompeii of the Middle East.” Step back in time as you explore the colonnaded streets, visiting the South Theater, the Temple of Artemis, and the ornate Nymphaeum. Later, continue on to Jordan’s capital, Amman, a modern and culturally diverse city steeped in an ancient past. Enjoy some time to explore this fascinating city before gathering for a farewell dinner.
