Jordan

Jordan is a land defined by Petra – one of the ancient world’s wealthiest trading cities. Constructed between rock fissures, Petra has to be witnessed to be believed and no journey to the country is complete without a visit to this rock-cut city. Jordan is also home to Jerash, one of the region’s best preserved Roman sites, the Byzantine church of Mt Nebo, a 16th century mosaic map in the town of Madaba and the 12th century crusader castle of Kerak. In addition there is a wealth of impressive natural wonders in Jordan with two of the most famous being the Dead Sea – the earth’s lowest point – and the desert landscapes of Wadi Rum. Further to the south, Jordan has a coastline on the Red Sea and at the town of Aqaba the excellent coral reefs are some of the best preserved in the region. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Jordan for over 25 years.
