Day 1: AMMAN QUEEN ALIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – DEAD SEA
Upon arrival to Queen Alia International Airport, meet and assist by Flow travel representative, Proceed to Dead Sea. A spectacular natural wonder the Dead Sea is perfect for religious tourism and fun in the sun with the family. With its mix of beach living and religious history you can soak up the sun while Biblical scholars can get their daily dose of religious history. The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water itself – some ten times saltier than sea water, and rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others. The unusually warm, incredibly buoyant and mineral-rich waters have attracted visitors since ancient times, including King Herod the Great and the beautiful Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra. All of whom have luxuriated in the Dead Sea’s rich, black, stimulating mud and floated effortlessly on their backs while soaking up the water’s healthy minerals along with the gently diffused rays of the Jordanian sun. Overnight.
Day 2: DEAD SEA - VISIT PETRA – WADI RUM
Breakfast at the hotel, today full day visiting the rose-red city known as Sela in the Bible and lost to the world for five centuries until it was rediscovered in 1812.
Enter Petra on horseback through a narrow gorge carved in the sandstone and opening on the stunning view of the Treasury, made famous in the movie “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. Visit the palace, the High Palaces and the Roman-Style Palace Tomb, Transfer to Wadi Rum. Overnight.
Day 3: WADI RUM 4X4 – AMMAN
Breakfast at the hotel, this morning Wadi Rum, almost 40 kilometers from Petra, where the movie Lawrence of Arabia and Red Planet was filmed is a uniquely shaped massive mountain that rose amongst the rosy red sand of the desert with towering cliffs of various brownish, reddish, and golden colors. Amongst this emptiness and silence you can camp and explore the desert in 4×4 Jeeps visiting the holographic pictures carved before Christ on this intriguing tour. Transfer back to your Amman for overnight.
Day 4: AMMAN CITY TOUR – JERASH – AJLOUN - AMMAN
Breakfast at the hotel, then drive to explore Jerash the Pompeii of the East You will enter Jerash through the monumental South Gate and find you wandering around in a Roman city. You will walk in the Oval Plaza surrounded by colonnades, visit the Roman theatre and Byzantine churches with mosaic-covered floors.
Enjoy a stroll along Jerash’ main road the Cardo and pass by the Nymphaeum. You may experience the marvellous acoustics of the theatre, the stage of the Jerash music festival which takes place every year. And see for yourself how the Romans built the earthquake-proof columns of the colonnaded streets. You will enjoy a fascinating road through a beautiful pine-forest and olive palms, until you reach the town of Ajloun. Ajlous is where Hadrian built himself an arch outside the town and stayed over the winter of 129 – 30 AD. In this village, you can visit the Castle of Ajloun or Qalaat Errabadh (Arabic for “Hilltop Castle”), from which there is a wonderful scenery westward into the Jordan Valley.
The marvels of nature and the genius of medieval Arab military architecture have given northern Jordan two of the most important ecological and historical attractions in the Middle East: the sprawling pine forests of the Ajloun-Dibbine area, and the towering Ayyubid castle at Ajloun, which helped defeat the Crusaders eight centuries ago.
One of Saladin’s generals built Ajloun Castle (Qal’at Ar-Rabad) in 1184 AD in order to control the iron mines of Ajloun, and to deter the Franks from invading Ajloun.
Then proceed to Amman visit Roman Theater: This magnificently restored theatre is the most obvious and impressive remnant of Roman Philadelphia, and is the highlight of Amman for most foreign visitors. The theatre itself is cut into the northern side of a hill, and has a seating capacity of 6000. The best time for photographs is the morning, when the light is soft – although the views from the top tiers just before sunset are also superb. The theatre was probably built in the 2nd century AD during the reign of Antoninus Pius (AD 138–61). It was built on three tiers: the rulers, of course, sat closest to the action, the military secured the middle section, and the general public perched and squinted from the top rows. Theatres often had religious significance, and the small shrine above the top row of seats once housed a statue of the goddess Athena (now in the Jordan Museum), who was prominent in the religious life of the city. Transfer back to your hotel in Amman for overnight.
