Description

Explore the fascinating rock city of Petra on a day trip from Amman. The ancient city in Wadi Musa was once carved out of the red sandstone rocks by the Nabataeans. The Nabataeans even built a water conduit through the rock face, creating a water reservoir in the desert. Thus Petra became a refuelling station for caravans and an important trading centre. After earthquakes and the conquest of the region by the Arabs, the city was abandoned and only rediscovered by a Swiss in 1812. Today Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven new wonders of the world

After a pick-up from your hotel you will reach the rock city after a pleasant drive. Pass the Siq, a narrow gorge over a kilometre long with rock faces over 80 metres high. Immediately afterwards you will see the impressive treasure house Khazne al-Firaun of the pink rock town, probably the most famous building of the city. This is one of the numerous rock tombs of Petra.

Examine the decorations on the stone walls and the remains of a water pipe. On the way from Khazne al-Firaun to the centre of Petra you will also pass the Roman Theatre, which once held thousands of spectators. Also visit the High Sacrificial Site with several stone altars, from where they have a fantastic view over Petra. Also visit the Königsgraböber and the Säulenstraße, the former main street of the rock town. During your tour of the city you will learn more about the traditions of the Nabataeans. After an eventful day you will finally be taken back to your hotel
