A nod towards the traditional way of life is present in the mosques and souqs, giving you a direct glimpse into the Jordanian way of life. Towering over the city stands The Amman Citadel which is majestically lit up by night. It hosts events throughout the holy month of Ramadan and features a souk selling handmade craft items and traditional food.

Make full use of a day spare in Amman to visit six of Jordan’s highlights on this private trip. See the Mosaic Map and another church mosaic at Madaba, and visit Mt. Nebo and Jesus’ baptism site on the River Jordan. Plus, hike along the Al-Mujib Siq river trail (summer only), and soak in the Dead Sea. After hotel pickup in Amman, travel south by private air-conditioned vehicle to Madaba, famous for its medieval mosaics. After your roughly 1-hour journey, arrive and choose to hire a local guide, to visit St. George’s Church, home to the famous Mosaic Map. Admire the 6th-century floor mosaic depicting the Holy Land of the time, and view the mosaic at the nearby Church of the Martyrs. Then, travel to Mt. Nebo, where Moses is believed to have seen the Promised Land, and died. Explore independently or hire a guide, admiring the church’s floor mosaics and the views over the Jordan Valley. From here, head to El-Maghtas on the River Jordan, the believed site of Jesus’ baptism, and then continue to Al-Mujib Siq, a scenic river canyon hiking trail (April to October only). Hire a guide here to hike through the river along the canyon base, and after an optional swim in the waterfall pool at the end, trek back to the entrance, and drive onward to the Dead Sea. After time at a Dead Sea beach to float in the salt-rich waters, return to Amman
