Explore five of the superb ancient sites at which our AIA lecturer has worked: Petra, Aqaba, Umm el-Jimal, Lejjun, and Qasr Bshir. This 15-day, luxury tour includes three nights at the world famous, rock-cut temple site of Petra. Jordan’s capital, Amman, is our base for seven nights to explore many spectacular sites such as the Roman ruins of Jerash and several elegant Omayyad fortress-palaces. Two nights at the Dead Sea and one night in Aqaba round out this well-paced, in-depth itinerary of Jordan’s greatest cultural wonders as well as stunning desert and mountain landscapes. Excellent leaders plus fine accommodations make this an exceptional experience.
