Day 2: Amman, Petra
After breakfast at the hotel, drive to Petra for a full-day tour. The Nabataean city of Petra was founded by the Edomites in the 8th century BC. The Nabataeans took control of the city of Petra in the 6th century AE. The city of Petra and the Nabataean kingdom prospered thanks to their geographical location on the caravan routes especially used for incense and spices. The city was abandoned in the 8th century CE after several earthquakes and a change in trade routes. Forgotten from the western world, the ancient city was rediscovered at the beginning of the 19th century. Contrary to what one could imagine, the city of Petra is immense! In the 4th century BC, it extended over more than 2,470 acres. The golden age of Petra dates back to the first century CE and it is estimated that the city population was between 20,000 and 40,000 souls! After the visit, return to the hotel in Petra for dinner and overnight. [B/D]
 
Day 3: Petra, Mt. Nebo, Madaba - Departure
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before leaving for Mount Nebo and Madaba to visit the sanctuary. Mount Nebo, which would be the place where Moses contemplated the promised land before dying, is 2,625 feet high and offers a superb view of the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea and Israel when the sky is not too foggy. The site is at its best early morning before the arrival of all buses. Then, continue to Madaba to visit St. George's Church and its famous mosaic depicting a map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. This map, dating back to the 6th century, contained more than 2 million pieces carved in stone, and covered 1,000 sq. feet on the floor of the church! Today only about a quarter remains. The work and the level of detail is impressive! From Madaba continue to Allenby Bridge if you plan to spend some time in Israel or to Amman’s international airport to board a flight to your next destination. [B]
