Day 3 ~ PETRA ~ One of the Greatest Wonders of the World

After breakfast, visit Jordan's Jewel, Capital City of the Nabataea’s, a city fully carved in the rose red stones of Wadi Mousa mountains. Then take a horseback ride to the Siq, the only access to this city. Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the 7 wonders of the world, is the legacy of the Nabateans, an industrious Arab people who settled in south Jordan more than 2000 years ago. Much of Petra's appeal comes from its spectacular setting deep inside a narrow desert gorge. From the main entrance, the visitor travels on foot through the awesome "SIQ", an immense crack in the sandstone that winds for one kilometer between overhanging cliffs. Then back to Petra for dinner and overnight.
