In addition to Jerash and Amman, Gadara (now UmQais) and Pella (TabaqitFahl) were once Decapolis cities, and each has unique Appeal. Um Qais is one of the most brilliant ancient Greco-Roman cities of the Decapolis.

Day 4: Amman - Jerash - Dead Sea - Amman
After breakfast, you will proceed for a full day tour starting in Jerash which is known to be the Jewel of the North and one of the largest most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy. In Jerash, you will see a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism which comprises paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.You will then continue to the Dead Sea – the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world as well as the lowest point on Earth. Here you will visit the Jordan Rift Valley which is a beautiful landscape. The waters reach the Dead Sea they are land-locked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate, leaving behind a dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products. The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west, giving it an almost other-worldly beauty.Return to the hotel in Amman for overnight.
Day 5: Amman - Madaba - Mount Nebo - Kerak - Petra

Continue driving via the Kings Highway, which links prehistoric villages from the Stone Age, and biblical towns, to arrive at Kerak, the magnificent Crusader Castle built in the 12th century AD, which is situated on a hilltop about 1000 meters above sea level and surrounded by a valley on three sides. Kerak has been inhabited since at least the Iron Age, and was an important city for the Moabites. Proceed to Petra for overnight stay.
Day 6: Full day visit of Petra
After breakfast, a full day visit of the “Rose Red City” of Petra – a treasure of the ancient world. Celebrating in 2012 the 200th year of its rediscovery, the ancient Nabatean city of Petra was recently voted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. In 1985 Petra was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Begin your visit by enjoying a walk or a short horse ride from Petra’s main entrance to the entrance of the old city through the “Siq”, which is a 1210 meters long narrow canyon.

After breakfast, drive only 10mins to visit Little Petra, ‘Al-Beidha’ an important suburb of the City of Petra. You enter the site through a narrow gorge called Siq al-Barid, the “cold Siq”. The name refers to the circumstance that the high walls prevent sunlight from entering the canyon and warming it. The Siq is 350 meters long with three wider areas inside. It is believed Little Petra was an important suburb of Petra, being the entry and exit point for the trade routes to the north and north-west. Continue to Wadi Rum, Jordan’s vast and echoing desert, for a 4×4 jeep ride. Stunning in its natural beauty, Wadi Rum epitomizes the romance of the desert. With its “moonscape” of ancient valleys and towering sandstone mountains rising out of the sand, Wadi Rum is also home to several Bedouin tribes who live in scattered camps throughout the area. Climbers are especially attracted to Wadi Rum because of its sheer granite and sandstone cliffs, while hikers enjoy its vast empty spaces. Return to Amman for overnight.
