    Itinerary

    Day 1: Amman Airport – Amman 

    Darna Travel representative will meet and assist upon arrival to Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) Amman. Make all costumes and immigration procedures, passport formalities and Visa handling. Private transfer to the hotel. Dinner (if arrival is before 21h). Accommodation. 

     

    Day 2: Amman - Madaba - Mount Nebo - Shobak Castle – Petra 

    Breakfast. Departure to Madaba. Visit St. George Orthodox Christian Church, the mosaic Map of Jerusalem, Palestine, Jordan, Israel & Egypt. Next, go to Mount Nebo which is an elevated ridge that is approximately 817 meters (2680 feet) above sea level, in what is now western Jordan. The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan. The West Bank city of Jericho is usually visible from the summit, as is Jerusalem on a very clear day. Then, go to visit Shobak castle, known as Shobak, but to the Crusaders it was Mont Real (Crak de Montreal) or Mons Regalis, the Fortress of the Royal Mount. It was built in 1115 by King Baldwin I of Jerusalem to guard the road from Damascus to Egypt, and was the first of a string of similar strongholds in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. The impressive castle stands as a lonely reminder of former Crusader glory dating from the same turbulent period as Kerak, crowning a cone of rock, which rises above a wild and rugged landscape dotted with a grand sweep of fruit trees below. Finally, transfer to Petra. Dinner & overnight. 

     

    Day 3: Petra Visit – Petra 

    Breakfast. Visit Petra which lies about 3-5 hours south of modern Amman, about 2 hours north of Aqaba, on the edges of the mountainous desert of the Wadi Araba. The city is surrounded by towering hills of rust-colored sandstone which gave the city some natural protection against invaders. The site is semi-arid, the friable sandstone which allowed the Nabataeans to carve their temples and tombs into the rock crumbling easily to sand. The colour of the rock ranges from pale yellow or white through rich reds to the darker brown of more resistant rocks. The contorted strata of differentcoloured rock form whorls and waves of colour in the rock face, which the Nabataeans exploited in their architecture. Back to Petra hotel for dinner & overnight.  

     

    Day 4: Petra – Little Petra – Wadi Rum (4x4 2 Hrs) – Amman 

    Breakfast. Departure from your hotel in Petra to Beidha, also known as Little Petra, the place where Nabateans used to entertain their guests. It is one of the main commercial areas of Petra, the entry and exit point for the trade routes to the north and north-west. Here the caravans from the Negev, Gaza and Askalon, from Jerusalem and the Phoenician coast would arrive and settle for a while to engage in trade, their camels and donkeys quartered in the broad acres near the cistern. The merchants probably stayed in the cool seclusion of the Siq Al-Barid, the cold gorge, whose entrance is at the end of a narrowing of the valley.  

    Then drive to Wadi Rum to do long visit for 02 hrs by jeep 4X4 in the middle desert which is known as The Valley of the Moon (Arabic: وادي القمر), following in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, climbing sand dunes and rock bridges. It is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in south Jordan at 60 km to the east of Aqaba. The highest elevation in Wadi Rum is Mount Um Dami at more than 1800m above sea level. Then transfer forward to Amman. Check-in at hotel. Dinner & overnight. 

     

    Day 5: Amman - Allenby Border or Sheikh Hussein - Bethlehem – Jerusalem 

    Breakfast. Cross the border and travel directly to Bethlehem - half day tour. At the end of the tour transfer to the Hotel.

    David, Cenacle and Dormition Abbey.

We will continue to the Modern City, View of the Knesset (parliament) and visit Yad Vashem, Holocaust Remembrance Museum.  

    *Saturdays and Holidays Yad Vashem is replaced with a visit to the neighborhood of Yemin Moshe (first neighborhood in Jerusalem outside the walls), Mishkenot Shaananim, and the Montefiore Mill. Return to hotel, dinner and overnight. 

     

    Day 7: Jerusalem - Allenby Border or Sheikh Hussein - Dead Sea - Jerash – Amman 

    Breakfast. Cross the border to return back to Jordan. Departure to the Dead Sea, descending to almost 400 meters below sea level, its salinity and minerals offer healing possibilities for different diseases where we can enjoy a bath. Continuation to the city of Jerash or "Gerasa", Greco-Roman city and one of the cities of Decápolis and known as the "Pompeii of the East" for its importance and its magnificent state of conservation. Jerash is located north of Amman, approximately 45 km and an hour away by road. During the tour, we will visit the Arc de Triomphe, the Oval Square, the Hadrian's Gate, the Hippodrome, the Cardo Maximus, the Colonnade, the Temple of Aphrodite, Zeus and the Artemis and ending at the Roman Theater with a wonderful acoustics.
