Among the 500 magnificent buildings in this UNESCO World Heritage Site, encased within architecturally designed grandiose, are the Treasury, a meticulously carved masterpiece, that first greets you from the towering sandstone split leading from the Siq’s exit; and the colossal first-century AD Nabataean Amphitheater, chiseled from the rock and with seating for 8,000 spectators.
Around 100 km away, enveloped in pre-historic sandstone and granite is Wadi Rum, a protected area on Saudi Arabia’s border. Also known as The Valley of the Moon, the 720 km2 stretch is the largest wadi in Jordan. Red sand (colored by iron oxide), soaring cliffs, and over 25,000 rock carvings characterize this cultural site.
Our Petra Tours are the easiest way to reach Jordan from Israel. With direct transport from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Eilat, we take the stress out of getting there. This means you have more time to gawk at the out-of-this-world spots awaiting you.
