Petra 1 Day From Eilat

We leave the Abraham Eilat early to beat the border morning rush and to maximize our time in Jordan. Once in Aqaba, we head to a local restaurant for a sumptuous breakfast of Jordanian Street Food where you can sample many dishes.

From there we head to Petra a famous heritage site
set in a stunning red sandstone landscape. One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, and the highlight of this trip, Petra was once a major crossroads of the ancient Near East, and its Nabataean people flourished through commerce, carving their capital in the red sandstone and leaving architectural jewels for humankind to wonder at.  We will enter via the Siq, and see the
Treasury, Amphitheater, Roman paved colonnaded road, Royal Tombs, temples, and more.

After the guided tour, and for those who are fit, you can fit in more places such as the Khubtha viewpoint or the Monastery.  In the late afternoon, we will gather and head to a local home for a family-cooked meal, supporting the local community, and having a small window into their lives.

After a full day, we head back to the border and to our hostel in Eilat.
