Embark on our amazing 9-day Journey through Jordan & Israel vacation package and prepare to be whisked through time on this breathtaking and historical adventure.
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which was once a crossroad for ancient people journeying East and West, enthralls a whole new generation of travelers. Jordan's oldest relics still captivate, like the stunning city of Petra and its rose-colored Al-Khazneh, a tomb exquisitely carved into the red mountains by craftsman from a bygone civilization. Feel the presence of the Roman Empire in the ruins of Jerash, a once thriving Roman provincial settlement that was part of the Decapolis League. Not all of Jordan could be tamed, though-the primeval starkness of Wadi Rum is a desert wilderness where nature has trumped most all human settlements. In the modern capital city of Amman, street life bustles and bazaars overflow with colorful textiles, foods, and other exciting goods. Jordan has so much to offer and unveils itself as a unique vacation destination for inspiration, motivation, and rejuvenation.
The Sheikh Hussein Bridge is your border crossing to Jerusalem, Israel. In Jerusalem begin your tour at Mount of Olives for a stunning panorama of the city. On nearby Mount Zion, see King David's Tomb, draped in azure and gold, and tour the vaulted room of the Last Supper and the Dormition Abbey. Highlights you will encounter on this first day include the sacred Western Wall, Chuch of the Holy Sepulchre, Bethlehem and so much more.
You leave Jerusalem behind and drive through the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. Ascend by cable car to the ancient fortress of Massada and on your way back down you have the chance to take a dip in the Dead Sea and enjoy its mineral-rich benefits. Next up you will drive the coastal road through the Lower Galilee region on your way to Nazareth. Visit the ancient synagogues, settlements and baptism sites of Cana, Tiberias, Capernaum and Yardenit.
This enriching journey will be both adventurous and educational!
