The 2300 year old Nabatean City of Petra which was ‘rediscovered’ in 1812 by Johan Buckhardt – and described eloquently by John Burgon as ‘the Rose Red City Half as Old as Time’ – is the jewel in the crown of Jordan. Petra covers 46 of land and was the bustling capital of the Arab Nabatean civilisation and lay at the crossroads of major trade routes.

Petra has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985 and was the first of the three such sites in Jordan.

Today you can walk through the dramatic Siq and experience the magical appearance of Al Khazeneh (the Treasury) and walk passed the colourful tombs, facades and theatre to the city centre. Then walk up to Ad Deir (The Monastery) or the High Place of Sacrifice or just explore the site with a new experience around each corner.
