Where to meet ?
Pick up from Eilat hotel.
A tour to Petra, Jordan leaving daily at 8:10 a.m. from your hotel or the airport in Eilat. Over 2000 years ago, inheritance, left to us by Nabateans, now called Petra – was very prosperous. More, then 20,000 residents occupied it. One of the greatest water systems of their times, that was created by The Nabateans, was built to gather water from flush floods. Water was sold to caravans and merchants, passing through. Inspired by Roman architectural manners, Nabateans created great facades, temples, and statues (numbering about 800). Now Petra is one of "The New Seven Wonders of The World". The highlights are: “The Treasury” and “Roman Theater” (amphitheater with over 4000 seats).
