3 days in Jordan from Israel - Part II: the Lost City of Petra

3 days in Jordan from Israel - Part II: the Lost City of Petra

Everyone has heard of the city of Petra. Lost in the desert for centuries and rediscovered only in the 19th century, this pink-city carved out of rock has been attracting visitors from all over the worlds for decades. 

But the ancient capital of the Nabateans is much more than the typical image of its magnificent Treasury: from Roman ruins to royal tombs and a monastery on the top of a hill, a visit to this city in the desert will leave you speechless. 

During my second day in Jordan, I spent the full day exploring one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Check out what this unique place has to offer!

3 days in Jordan from Israel - Part I: Jerash & Amman

The Kingdom of Jordan is a fascinating country rich in history, culture and incredible natural landscapes that can’t be missed when visiting the Middle East. Home to one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, I concluded my trip to Israel with a 3-day visit to its neighbouring country, starting with the Roman city of Jerash and the Citadel of Amman in the capital city.
