This afternoon, tour Amman, the “White City” because all its buildings are of local white limestone.  View the Citadel and the Roman Amphitheater.  Continue to Jerash, an ancient city boasting an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6,500 years and one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world.  Wander the colonnaded streets to explore the soaring hilltop temples, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.

On departure from Amman, you will drive into the desert to Wadi Rum and explore the area aboard a Bedouin 4×4 jeep.  Virtually untouched, Wadi Rum is a stupendous, timeless place where a maze of monolithic rock formations rise from the desert floor.  The area has been the setting for many films since Lawrence of Arabia was filmed on location here over 50 years ago.

Continue your journey to the Red Rose City of Petra.  Your hotel is just steps away from the UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Spend a whole day exploring the ancient Nabataean capital.  Enter the city through the East Siq that leads to the remarkable Treasury.

Today travel north to the Dead Sea – at 1,345 feet below sea level, the coast of the Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth.  The sea is actually a large inland lake with the saltiest water anywhere in the world, almost six times as salty as ocean water.  Relax as kings, queens and celebrities have, enjoying the sea’s therapeutic properties.
