Welcome to Jordan! Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met by our driver and transferred to your hotel in Amman for overnight.
Today you will start your sightseeing tour of Jerash, the most beautiful and preserved Roman city in existence. Beneath its external Graeco-Roman veneer, Jerash also preserves a subtle blend of east and west. Its architecture, religion and languages reflect a process by which two powerful cultures meshed and coexisted – The Graeco-Roman world of the Mediterranean basin and the ancient traditions of the Arab Orient. Continue to Ajloun Castle, a 12th century Muslim castle built by the Ayyubids overlooking the west bank of Jordan river mountains. Once surrounded by a moat, arrow slits were incorporated in its thick walls. A fine example of Islamic architecture, the fortress dominated a wide stretch of the northern Jordan Valley and passages to it. Return to Amman and overnight at your hotel. (B)

The first city to encounter is Madaba, “the City of Mosaics.” The city, best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, is home to the famous 6th century mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. With two million pieces of coloured stone, the map depicts hills and valleys, villages and towns as far as the Nile Delta. Also see Mount Nebo, overlooking the Dead Sea, the Jordan River Valley, Jericho and the distant hills. Overnight in Petra. (B)

Used in the final sequence of the film “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” the towering façade of the Treasury is only one of myriad archaeological wonders to be explored at Petra. Return to your hotel. (B)
Time and season permitting, visit Little Petra, a northern suburb of Siq al-Barid, 9km north of Wadi Musa town, with its short, high gorge and familiar carved facades.
