Once lost in time, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra is a not-to-be missed icon whose beauty is as spellbinding as the history that surrounds it. Here, intricate temples, palaces, and administrative buildings dating to the ancient Nabataea people are hewn into the red rock of the jebels, or rocky desert hills. To see the soft evening light illuminate it with a rosy glow will have a striking effect on you. Your Jordan stay includes a visit to the Dead Sea; two nights in the capital, Amman; an excursion to Biblical Mount Nebo (where Moses took his last breath upon seeing the Promised land), and more. Make the most of your time in the Middle East by adding these travel milestones, at a great value.
