More than 2,000 years ago the Nabatean Arabs carved here amazing monuments in the sandstone. The Nabateans gained wealth by dominating the trade routes of ancient Arabia, but came under Roman rule in 106 AD. Visitors enter Petra via the Siq, an impressively narrow path, flanked by 80 meters high cliffs, till the Treasury. Its name comes from the Bedouin belief that the Pharaoh hid his treasure in the urn at the top of the Kazneh. The monument consists of a massive façade, 30 meters wide and 43 meters high, carved out of the red rose sandstone in the early 1st century. Other monuments you will see are the Street of Façades and the Royal Tombs. The guide says farewell to you and you walk the same way back to the entrance gate. Meet your driver and drive to Madaba town, known for its Byzantine mosaic art. Highlight is the visit to St George's Church with the popular mosaic map of the Holy Land from the 6th century. Short drive to Mount Nebo. From here Prophet Moses overlooked the Promised Land after 40 yrs in the desert, and Nebo is his alleged burial site. Transfer back to your Amman hotel or residence.
