Amman Petra Full-Day Trip

17 reviews
If you have time for one side trip from Amman, make it Petra. Carved 2,300 years ago by the Nabataeans, this southern Jordan UNESCO-listed rock city is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. This private tour whisks you there and back in a day by private air-conditioned vehicle and with an itinerary customizable to your wishes. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included, with optional local guiding at Petra at own expense.

Fine example of non cave buildings around the Petra complex. Built in the post Nabataean era and worth a slight detour from the main road.

This is slightly off the main road and often missed. The church is worth the hike. the courtyard, the inside with the excellent condition mosaic floor. Once outside, it gives a good view of the Great Temple across the street.

The Byzantine Church, also known as the Petra Church, is one of three churches in Petra’s Church Complex. The Petra Church is believed to have been built in the second half of the fifth century. It’s worth the climb up the hill to see the well-preserved mosaics illustrating the seasons, animals, people, pottery, and plants. In my opinion, the mosaics are second only to Mount Nebo (the Madaba Mosaic Map is in a class of its own).

A byzantine church from the late period of the decay of the city glory after roman invasion. This is one of the few places built rather than carved

Although this is a ruin you can still get a feel for what the church would have been like. The highlight here os course are the mosiacs.
