THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SITES
Unravelling the mysteries of Wadi Rum, meditating in front of the desert castles, admiring the marvellous Petra and relaxing on the shores of the Dead Sea – this is Jordan, a veritable kaleidoscope of colours and cultures.
Amman is a warm and welcoming city. To understand this agglomeration of 2 million inhabitants, you must visit the Citadel and the Archaeological Museum, presenting the different civilizations that have succeeded one another in Jordan.
“City of a thousand columns”. To walk through the streets of Jerash is to travel back in time. Theatres, baths, temples and forums bear witness to the grandeur and majesty of this ancient Roman city.
“City of mosaics”, this small town, an ancient Moabite city mentioned in the Bible, is famous for its mosaics spread in churches and houses.
Perched at an altitude of 840m, Mount Nebo is the most revered site in Jordan. The site offers an exceptional view of the Jordan Valley and the Holy City of Jerusalem.
Located 400m below sea level, the Dead Sea is one of the most curious places on the planet. The salinity is such that you can float in its waters without effort.
The Citadel of Kerak, built on the foothills of a hill by the Crusaders, offers a spectacular view of the valleys leading to the
THE CASTLES OF THE DESERT
To the east of Amman, the “desert castles” were mostly built by the Umayyad rulers of Damascus. The ancient Roman villa Qasr Al Hallabat, the black basalt Qasr Al Azarq Castle and the Qasr Al Kharanah Castle are worth a visit.
PETRA, WONDER OF THE MODERN WORLD
The jewel of Jordan, the site, carved out of the rock around the 6th century B.C., has been classified as a World Heritage Site. The impressive ancient city fascinates by its natural setting and the quality of its monumental complex.
Wadi Rum is one of the most beautiful natural sites in Jordan. It is a breathtaking, timeless place, left almost untouched by man and his destructive activities. Here, water and wind have sculpted these gigantic and imposing towers, elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence as “…vast, resonant, God-like”.
