Day 8 Petra

This day is dedicated to Jordan's most famous highlight:

Petra! The mysterious "Rose Red City", capital of the Nabatheans, the lost city carved in the colorful sandstone of the E-Shara mountains, has always been one of the miracles of the Orient. We start our visit riding on a horse to the siq (gorge), a natural crack in the rocks which the Nabatheans made into a secret, ceremonial entrance to the lost city. We walk through the 1.2 Km long natural gorge, amidst a variety of statues and praying niches carved by the Nabatheans, until, suddenly, we face the grand "Treasury" - a huge burial-monument, carved all out of the rock 2000 years ago… The "Hazane" (Treasury) is just the first of many rock-carved burial monuments that gave this canyon its name: "The Facades Street". This street leads us to the roman theatre, royal tombs, the roman colonnaded street, and Qasr al-bent, a well-preserved Nabathean temple.
