Petra, The Rose Red Desert City - AQ01

Ready to reserve this excursion?

Discover the wonders of one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, the ancient fortress city of Petra, half-built/half-carved from rock and towering cliffs. Founded by Nabateans more than 2,000 years ago at the crossroads of Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia, Petra derived its wealth from the caravan trade. Its spectacular construction - reflecting eastern, Hellenistic and later Roman influences - is considered an unparalleled masterpiece of sculpted art. Petra's remote mountain location kept it hidden for centuries.
