Your second day begins with a tour of Petra, one of the wonders of the world and Jordan’s most famous attraction. Carved into the red cliffs in the early 1st century as the tomb of a Nabataean king, the site was hidden under sand for centuries before becoming accessible again. Enter through a narrow gorge, then tour the Treasury and Amphitheater with a guide who will explain the site’s history.
After the guided visit, enjoy some free time to continue exploring on your own. Climb to the Royal Tombs, walk down the Roman Cardo, hike up to the Monastery, and marvel at the beauty of the different sites. Meet up with your group for lunch in Wadi Musa before returning to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv via the Allenby border crossing. (B, L)
