Itinerary
  • Day 1 : Amman Airport - Madaba - Nebo - Petra expand_more

    The guests will discover The Madaba Map, also known as the Madaba Mosaic Map, is part of a floor mosaic in the early Byzantine church of Saint George in Madaba, Jordan. The Madaba Map is of the Middle East, and part of it contains the oldest surviving original cartographic depiction of the Holy Land and especially Jerusalem. It dates to the 6th century AD.

    Mount Nebo is believed to be the tomb of Moses. It is a lonely, windswept hill. 

    Protecting the ruins of a 4th and 6th Century church whose floor is still covered with marvellous mosaics, is a building constructed by the Franciscans who started excavating the site in 1933. Um El Rassas is a walled settlement about 30 kilometres southeast of Madaba. Its main feature is a Byzantine tower 15 meter high used by early Christian monks seeking solitude. Archaeologists have also unearthed the Church of St. Stephen whose remarkable mosaic floor of the Umayade epoch is decorated with Jordanian, Palestinian and Egyptian city plans. The ancient Kings’ highway in use for 3,000 years is an ideal route for your journey south. 

    A favourite stop in Madaba, City of Mosaics, to view its wonderfully vivid map of the sixth century A.D. Holy Land. Nearby is the revered Mount Nebo, where Moses climbed to survey the Promised Land. Visit the site of Machaerus, the stronghold of Herod Antipas, where Salome danced for the head of John the Baptist.
