    Visit the city’s iconic sites, including the Roman Theater & the Citadel and the King Abdullah Mosque. Then, the highlight of the day: A visit the Royal Automobile Museum that showcases the life of King Hussein through a wide range of vintage and limited-edition cars, such as WW1-era armored cars, Aston Martins, Packards, Mercedes Benzs and Cadillacs. Perhaps the highlight of the museum is a stunning 1946 Lincoln Continental Convertible that the late king used for his private drives.

  • Day 3 -

    After breakfast, head out towards the general direction of the Dead Sea, making your way to Madaba, the city of Mosaics where you can find the oldest known mosaic map of the holy land in St George's Church.

    Continue to nearby Mount Nebo, where, according to the Bible, Moses stood and looked out at the Holy Land. At the peak, you can stand and see, as he did, the sweeping vista of the Jordan River valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho and a glimpse of Jerusalem’s spires and rooftops in the far distance. Before heading back down the mountain, visit the Byzantine Church.

    Head further south using the beautiful desert highway, with its broad tarmac to Kerak. Kerak has a mighty Crusader castle that towers above the desert floor. Inside, you will see stone vaults, numerous corridors, and strong doorways made of limestone, and the views from the castle’s fortress are incredible.

    After Kerak, drive to Petra on the ever stunning desert highway. Rest up in Petra as a long and fascinating day awaits tomorrow.

  • Day 4 -

    After breakfast at the hotel, spend the entire day exploring Petra, Jordan’s most famous attraction.
