  • Petra is located in the midst of about 100 ruggedly dramatic square kilometres of Wadi Araba. It is an area of a living museum of 10,000 years of human history.

  • T.E. Lawrence, the legendary Lawrence of Arabia, came to Wadi Rum many times, both in his pursuit of success during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917 to 1918, but also because he found solace in the isolation. Wadi Rum still rewards visitors today with peace and unceasing beauty. The magnificence of Rum lies primarily in its amazing geology even one that looks like a giant face in profile. The springs that appear throughout Wadi Rum were created when ancient rainfall permeated the sandstone, was stopped by the granite and found tiny fissures to form pools.

  • The Dead Sea is the remnant of Lake Lisan which was 200 kilometres long and 200 metres deep than the current level of Dead Sea. As the lake contracted, it left lake Tiberias and the Dead Sea, which is 405 metres below sea level. 

  • The most famous mosaics in Madaba is the map on the floor of St George’s Church, but there are many others in different parts of the town, several of them even more complete and vibrantly colourful. 

  • Jebel Al Qala’a (about 850m above sea level) is the site of ancient Rabbath-Ammon. Occupied since the Bronze Age; it's surrounded by a 1700m-long wall, which was rebuilt many times during the Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as the Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad periods. 

  • The Roman theatre is cut into the northern side of a hill and has a seating capacity of 6000. The best time for photographs is in the morning when the light is soft. The views from the top just before sunset are also superb.
