Jordan; Ancient cities, Biblical sites, desert castles

8 March 2020

8 days from £3,750pp

Embark on an unforgettable journey through the spectacular country of Jordan, awash with the bright colours of spring flowers. Indulge in mouth-watering Jordanian cuisine, explore the ancient capital, Amman, and discover hidden corners of extraordinary Petra, the world-renowned archaeological site.
  • Sample some of Jordan’s best innovative cuisine
  • Enjoy two full days in Petra, where we will discover lesser known areas off the beaten track
  • Explore Umm ar-Rasas and discover Byzantine mosaics, seeing often unexplored sides of Jordan
  • See this unique country in spring time and be greeted by an array of spring flowers 
 
Jordan’s romantic associations – lost cities, biblical stories, Lawrence of Arabia – are well known, but the country is still a mystery to many. Many civilisations have left their mark on Jordan. The modern state has grown out of these, its rich cultural heritage reaching back to the prophets of the Old Testament. Our tour includes spectacular sites created by Romans, Christians and Muslims: flourishing cities of the Decapolis, Byzantine basilicas with resplendent mosaics, a fascinating Umayyad desert baths complex and a crusader stronghold towering high above the valley of the Dead Sea. Perhaps most breathtaking of all, the rock-cut stronghold of Petra, hidden away in the mountains south of Edom, was the capital of the enigmatic Nabateans, a nomadic people of Arab origin who created there a city unique in the ancient world. In addition, Jordan offers a most diverse and magical landscape, ranging from the canyons of the King's Highway and the geologically interesting basalt zone of eastern Jordan, to the wild beauties of the desert.
