Tour description provided by Intrepid

Travel to Jordan and visit the rose-hued fortress city of Petra, which was the capital of the ancient Nabataeans - a mysterious people who carved a trading empire from the desert in what is now modern Jordan. Take time to explore the extraordinary beauty of Petra's rock-hewn architecture and to discover its history. There's also time to float in the legendary Dead Sea and see Jerusalem shimmering in the distance from mosaic-adorned Mt Nebo. This short break amid ancient wonders is the perfect way to cap off a voyage to the Middle East.

Itinerary

Day 1 Amman/Dead Sea/Petra
One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Amman offers a fascinating mix of ancient sites and modern culture to explore. Sitting at the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea is seven times saltier than a normal ocean and its mud is said to have healing properties.
Day 2 Petra
Hewn out of the rose-coloured rock face, the ancient Nabataean city of Petra is one of the Middle East's most spectacular destinations, and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
Day 3 Petra/Amman
Amman has served as the modern and ancient capital of Jordan and today historic sites such as the Citadel offer an insight into the city's intriguing past.
