Over 2,000 years ago merchants, travelers, and caravans entered Petra in the same way as they journeyed along the ancient trade routes from Arabia to the north. The Nabataeans thrived in their desert city by inventing an ingenious water-gathering system and building their unique structures from the rock mountains. You will have a guided tour of Petra’s highlights and see the intricately decorated facades chiseled out of the rock cliffs. See a colonnaded street; pass the amphitheater; ancient tombs and cavernous chambers.
