Travel to Jordan and visit the rose-hued fortress city of Petra, which was the capital of the ancient Nabataeans – a mysterious people who carved a trading empire from the desert in what is now modern Jordan. Take time to explore the extraordinary beauty of Petra’s rock-hewn architecture and to discover its history. There’s also time to float in the legendary Dead Sea and see Jerusalem shimmering in the distance from mosaic-adorned Mt Nebo. This short break amid ancient wonders is the perfect way to cap off a voyage to the Middle East.
