Description

Take a bus ride from Tel Aviv to an adventure: While journeying down the Desert Highway, be prepared to be mesmerized by the awe-inspiring views of the desert and mountains. Once you reach Petra, the Lost Nabatean capital, you can choose to explore the city either on foot or on horseback. This impressive archaeological site, dating back approximately 2,300 years, boasts remarkable structures carved out of red-hued rock cliffs. Traverse through the Siq, a breathtaking smooth gorge that leads all the way to the iconic Petra Treasury, adorned with intricate decorations. Take in the captivating Obelisk Tomb, discover the Petra Theater, and explore the ancient colonnaded street of Petra, adorned with exquisitely decorated shrines, while learning about bygone eras. After a night at a great hotel located next to the archeological park, enjoy breakfast and the entire day exploring Petra to your heart's desire. The main attraction is the Petra Monastery, also known as Al Dayr, situated on a nearby hill and offering a spectacular view en route. Next, witness the enchanting Petra Great Temple with its grand columns and intricate decorations, visit the ancient Byzantine Church, explore Qasr Al Bint Temple - rumored to be a palace constructed for the daughter of a biblical Pharaoh, and discover the enigmatic Urn Tomb. Check out the local Bedouin Market, hike along towering cliffs, and capture stunning pictures of the entire site. Many visitors opt to conclude their day at the Petra Museum, where they can learn about how these splendid relics shaped Nabatean culture over time. Finish your day with a relaxing ride back to your drop-off point in Tel Aviv.
