Amman

Amman, the capital city of Jordan, is one of contrasts packed with modern buildings, restaurants and galleries alongside remnants of ancient history.

Frenetic, energetic and historic, the citadel is one of the world's oldest and is home to the 1900-year old Amphitheatre along with various unexcavated sites. See Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic remains during your visit, or stop by the Jordanian Archaeological Museum to marvel at artefacts from the Palaeolithic period onward.

A highlight of your trip to Amman is an encounter with the Dead Sea, where you can cover yourself with mineral-rich mud, thought to have wonderful healing properties, and float effortlessly on the water's surface. It's a day trip you won't be forgetting in a hurry.

Petra

This rose-red city is Jordan's most valuable treasure. Famed for its archaeological background, Petra is half-carved, half-built into the sheer rock face by the Nabataen locals. 

This unique city is tucked away between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, and surrounded by mountains that are dotted with gorges and passages to explore. This mysterious necropolis was built partly in honour of the dead, and a trip here will leave you feeling humbled and in touch with Jordan's wonderful history.
