Petra Full Day
Shore Excursions - Petra Full Day
You will be met at the port in Aqaba by your private guide to begin your tour the city of Petra. Lost to the world for centuries in the mountains of southern Jordan, this rose ' red city, half as old time, was discovered by the Swiss explorer Burkhardt in 1812. Once it was a stronghold and capital of the Nabateans, but fell to Rome in 106 AD. Travel part of the way on horseback and the rest on foot through the deep and narrow passages carved millions of years ago by erosion. The Treasury finally appears magnificently in front of you, an awesome start to an unforgettable experience. Now we begin our exploration of what both the Nabateans and Romans left for us to witness. The most adventurous will be invited to hike up to the spiritual 'high Place' site of the sacrificial altar, with spectacular views of the ancient city and surrounding. Return to your cruise.
