Holidays to Petra
Holidays in Petra Jordan. Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for this amazing place. It has to be seen to be believed. Petra the world wonder, is without doubt Jordan’s most valuable
treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago, turning it into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.
Holidays to Petra Jordan, the legendary lost city carved into the walls of a hidden desert canyon, is the most famous of Jordan’s many dazzling sites, and a fascinating excursion from Eilat. There are escorted bus tours that leave Eilat early in the morning, get you to Petra before noon,
and back to your hotel in Eilat by late afternoon. But Petra’s antiquities, natural beauty, and ever-changing feel at different times of day
are easily worth a stay of 1 to 3 nights or more. In addition, there are beautiful, amazing affordable desert resorts only a few minutes from Petra, which make this a good place to chill and relax.
