Stop At: Petra - Wadi Musa 77110 Jordan

Leave EILAT in the morning, crossing the Arava border and driving to PETRA through the scenic Jordanian desert, passing by the towering mountains and rock formations of Wadi Rum, which mesmerised Lawrence of Arabia and where he once lived and fought with the Bedouin.

Enter the Rose City of PETRA through the Siq, a narrow passage through the mountains which has inspired awe for centuries - up to the Treasury which suddenly appears at the end of the gorge leaving visitors breath-taken by its size, colour and beauty. Continue into the heart of this ancient city carved into the mountains, passing hundreds of ancient rock tombs and monuments and a spectacular Amphitheatre which once held 3,000 spectators. After our visit to PETRA, stop for a sit-down lunch, before leaving Wadi Musa (the new town of Petra). Drive to Aqaba for a short city tour, before returning to the Arava border and back to Eilat.
