hours via the Desert Highway to the rock city Petra, Jordan's main attraction
and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Petra was established around the 6th century
B.C. by the Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe settling in the area. With a
sophisticated water supply and distribution system the city could prosper and
the Nabateans founded a commercial empire that extended into Syria and
controlled the main caravan routes at that time. Meet your private guide at the
Visitor Centre and start the tour on horse back or on foot to the Siq, the
narrow canyon with some votive niches. At the end of this gorge you will see the
most beautiful monument of Petra, the Treasury, also known as Al Khazneh.
