Petra, Jordan

One of the world’s oldest cities, Petra is as beautiful and mysterious now as ever it was. Head out after sunset for a new perspective on this stunning destination. Your tour commences at Siq, a deep gorge at the entrance to the ancient city, finishing at the iconic Al-Khazneh building simply known as The Treasury. View this oft-photographed façade, carved from sandstone, as this glorious frontage is illuminated by the light of 1,800 candles.

By night, the rose-coloured stone from which the city’s monuments and ancient buildings are constructed takes on a new deeper hue. As your footsteps add to a legacy of wonder that has lasted for many thousands of years, listen to the ambient serenade of a traditional Bedouin’s musical performance.

Your expert guide will share with you the secrets of this ancient city. Learn how the Nabataean inhabitants were able to frustrate invasion from the ancient Greeks. Discover why the Romans held the city in such reverence. You’ll also find out why Petra fell into decline following antiquity and how its many striking architectural treasures have remained so well preserved.
