Transfer to the hotel in Amman for overnight.
After breakfast you'll leave for Madaba, situated 30 km south west of the capital Amman. Madaba is mainly famous for the Byzantine and Omayyad mosaics, in particular for the mosaic map dating back to the Byzantine era representing the Holy Land: here you'll visit one of the most spectacular churches in the world, St. George's Church, where you'll see with your own eyes the famous mosaic of Jerusalem.
You'll then head to Mount Nebo, the place where Moses was buried. On clear days you can enjoy a marvelous view from here: the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea and Jericho on the other bank of Jordan River.
You'll then reach the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth: its surface and shores are situated 423 meters below sea level. You'll have the chance to swim on the Dead Sea experiencing a rare floating sensation while you'll give your skin a natural beauty treatment: you'll feel the healing properties of mineral mud on your skin for some well deserved relax.
You'll then travel south to Petra, for dinner and overnight at your hotel.
Day dedicated entirely to the city of Petra: no trip to Jordan can be said complete without having seen the capital of the ancient Kingdom of the Nabataeans. The lost city, entirely sculpted by man in the pink and red sandstone rocks, really puts your imagination to the test: it is a mysterious and glorious place, an eternal tribute to a lost civilization.
Petra was the central meeting point of the Nabataean spice routes that came from the Persian Gulf, Western Arabia and the Red Sea. About two thousand years ago, Petra became the capital of the Nabatean Empire. The city was so renowned that one of its kings, Aretas IV, is even mentioned in the Bible. The natural richness of the mountainous area combines superbly with the refined culture and massive architecture of the Nabataeans, which have carved their theater, temples, facades, tombs, monasteries, streets entirely in pink sandstone and red ... It is no wonder that UNESCO has placed Petra on the World Heritage list!
You will enter Petra via the Siq, a deep and narrow gorge, at the end of which the most famous monument of Petra will suddenly appear majestic: al-Khazneh or the Treasury. Perhaps you will recognize it as the stage of the final sequence of the film "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".
But the Treasure will be just the beginning: you can walk and climb the paths of Petra, where at every step you will see hundreds of buildings carved in multicolored stone and eroded through the centuries. After the visit of Petra, the guide will take you to the hotel in Amman, where you will dine and spend the night.
After breakfast, the guide will accompany you to explore the capital, as well as the largest city of Jordan: Amman is in fact the political, cultural and commercial center of the country, as well as being one of the oldest cities in the world, in the past known as Rabbat Ammoun.
Here you can visit the Citadel, the Roman Ruins, the great Roman Theater, located in the most lively and social area of the capital, and finally the King Abdullah Mosque (external visit); then you will have free time to visit the city's Souq. You will then head towards Jerash, the Pompeii of the Middle East.
You will enter Jerash through the monumental South Gate and you will find yourself walking in a typical Roman city. You will see the Oval Square, surrounded by colonnades, you will visit the Roman theater and the Byzantine churches with their characteristic floors covered with mosaics. Walk along the main Jerash road, the Cardo, and pass by the Nymphaeum.
You can also experience the wonderful acoustics of the theater, the stage of the Jerash music festival that takes place here every year. And you will see with your own eyes how the Romans built the earthquake-proof columns of the colonnaded streets. You will then return to Amman, where you will dine and spend the night.
After breakfast, transfer to the airport.
