Amman, Jordan

Amman, the capital of Jordan, features the Citadel and other archaeological sites and museums. However, the pièce de résistance and real reason for visiting Jordan is the once in a lifetime trek to the Greco-Roman site of Petra. Sand palaces appear carved out of the rose red stone of the area. Wander in on foot or ride a donkey. A taste of the past awaits you as you leave modern civilization behind and become a Bedouin for a day or two as you explore the remains of this incredible outdoor archaeological museum. Raiders of the Lost Ark was filmed here. You, too, will feel like Indiana Jones for the day!
