Continue your way to Madaba, renowned as the location of the Madaba Map. This most famous mosaic map is on the inner floor of the St. George Church, depicting hills and valleys, villages and towns as far as the Nile Delta. Continue to drive about 3.5 hours to Petra.

Today, you will have an English-speaking expert guide for a 2-hour introduction to Petra. After that, it is free time for exploration at your pace.
First, you will walk through the Siq, the main entrance to Petra, which looks like a long, narrow and dim crack in the rock mountain. Al Khazneh (The Treasury) is right before your eyes when you reach the end of Siq canyon. Al Khazneh is a 39-meter-high mausoleum for the Nabataean King Aretas IV carved deep into the red sandstone rock face. Continue walking to visit other sites according to your interest, such as the Royal Tombs, the Colonnaded Street, the Monastery (Al-Deir), etc. Immerse yourself in the ancient and well-preserved capital city of the Nabataean people. If you like, sightseeing on a camel or a donkey is available.
In the afternoon, return to Amman by car.
