Visit the Nabateans City of Petra
Your tour to Jordan must include the visit of Petra, which is without any doubt the most beautiful site in Jordan.
It is recommended to start the tour early in the morning, as you might even find a full day of visit not enough to explore all the treasures in this beautiful City.
The tour will start by crossing the Siq, which is over 1 km long gorge, hemmed in by cliffs soaring up to 80 Meters, Just walking through the Siq is an experience in itself.
The first thing you will see is the Obelisk shrine carved in the cliff.
Then just when you think you have seen enough dazzling sight in the Siq, you will face with the treasury, which is the finest achievement of Petra, a massive facade, 30 meters wide and 43 meters high, carved out of the sheer, dusky pink rock-face and dwarfing everything around it.
Then, you will come to the Theater which looks Roman, but was executed by the Nabateans in the 1st Century AD, it is carved into solid Rock except towards the front earlier side, where part of it was built freestanding, initially it could seat 3000 people, but was later extended to finally hold about 7000.
Then a flight of 800 stairs cut into the rock takes you up to the mountain of the monastery, which is Petra’s second most famed attraction.
