Day 2 Sunday: Amman - Desert Castles - Amman

After breakfast, departure for the Desert Castles / Lunch.

The first castle visited is Qasr Al-Kharaneh, located 55 km from Amman. It is probably the only one that had a primarily military function, as its architecture suggests. However, for some researchers, the importance of the stables suggests rather a caravanserai. Qasr Amra is located 26 km southwest of Azraq, by the main road. Qasr Amra occupies an island which formed in the bed of a wadi almost always dry. This small, well-preserved castle has clear lines and rounded contours, whose blond stone blends in with the heat of the desert. Qasr Amra was built at the beginning of the 8th century by Caliph Walid I, a great lover of hunting, poetry and various pleasures. Qasr Al Azraq was severely affected by an earthquake in 1927, however the castle remains magnificent.

 

It is the inscription above the main entrance that has made it possible to date the renovation to the 13th century, the probable date of the construction of the mosque in the center of the courtyard.

Day 6 Sunday: Amman - Desert Castles - Amman

After breakfast, departure for the Desert Castles / Lunch. The first castle visited is Qasr Al-Kharaneh, located 55 km from Amman. It is probably the only one that had a primarily military function, as its architecture suggests. However, for some researchers, the importance of the stables suggests rather a caravanserai. Qasr Amra is located 26 km southwest of Azraq, by the main road. Qasr Amra occupies an island which formed in the bed of a wadi almost always dry. This small, well-preserved castle has clear lines and rounded contours, whose blond stone blends in with the heat of the desert. Qasr Amra was built at the beginning of the 8th century by Caliph Walid I, a great lover of hunting, poetry and various pleasures. Qasr Al Azraq was severely affected by an earthquake in 1927, however the castle remains magnificent.

 

It is the inscription above the main entrance that has made it possible to date the renovation to the 13th century, the probable date of the construction of the mosque in the center of the courtyard. Return to Amman for a visit to the capital of the Hashemite kingdom. Between the eastern desert and the Jordan Valley, Amman is home to a million inhabitants. Entirely built in a white beige limestone, the city is an aggregate of cream-colored cubes, golden by the sun. From the top of the citadel, do not miss the superb view of the lower town. But before going down there, a visit to the Archaeological Museum, the temple of Hercules and the Umayyad Palace is a must. A short tour then in the lower town, which has preserved a beautiful Greco-Roman Theater, which can accommodate around six thousand spectators.

Return to the hotel. Dinner and overnight.

 

Day 7 Monday: Amman - Jerash - Ajloun - Amman

Breakfast at the hotel and departure for Jerash / Lunch

In the morning departure to the ancient city of Jerash or Gerasa, approximately 45km from Amman. It is the second largest site in Jordan after Petra. Today considered one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the Near East. Hidden under the sand for several centuries before being discovered and restored for 70 years. The city was entirely built in a pinkish orange limestone, which is magnified at dawn and sunset by the rays of the sun. The heyday of Gerasa dates from the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Jerash is the epitome of extensive and formal Roman municipal planning throughout the Middle East.

 

It is adorned with cobbled streets, colonnades, immense temples on the crest of hills, charming theaters, spacious public squares, thermal baths, fountains and walls pierced by towers and gates. After lunch, Continuation to Ajloun this city has a very impressive Fortress (Qalaat al Rabad), nestled at the top of a mountain, built in the 12th century, at the time of Saladin, to defend the region and control the iron mines and to prevent the Crusaders from crossing into Jerusalem. From the top a superb view over the Jordan Valley. Return to Amman. Dinner & overnight at the hotel.

Your Destination

Jordan

Full to the brim with epic scenery, ancient history, captivating cities and bucketlist attractions, Jordan is a popular tourist destination that offers its guests a true immersion into the charms of the Middle East.

 

While Jordan offers a variety of spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites, none are more beloved than Petra, a fascinating archaeological city that sits within a mountain gorge and features beautiful 'rose-tinted' stone. Frequently referred to as one of the seven new Wonders of the World, this architectural masterpiece is a must-stop spot on any tourist's itinerary in Jordan.

 

For those hoping to escape the arid climate of the desert, we recommend taking advantage of Jordan's coastline with a visit to the Dead Sea. Thanks to the incredibly high salt quantities in the water, here, you can float atop the waves, make the most of the natural minerals and their healing properties and enjoy a well deserved rest, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life!
