2022 Amman > Amman

At the crossroads of history

The vibrant Kingdom of Jordan is at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe with Nabataean tradesmen, Roman legionnaires, Muslim armies and Christian Crusaders all leaving their mark over the millennia.
Go in search of antiquity and the origins of faith as you travel through this remarkable country, from the ancient Roman city of Jerash to Bethany Beyond the Jordan, the site where Jesus was baptised. Marvel at intricate mosaics and lose yourself in the otherworldly beauty of the desert at Wadi Rum. And just when you thought you had your fill of ancient wonders, the first sight of the magnificent Treasury at Petra will leave you speechless.
