We compress many centuries of history into a short but comprehensive look at this pacific country, visiting Amman, Jerash, Mount Nebo, and Petra, the astounding city carved from living rock, surely one of the top entries in any traveler's life list. And after Petra, Wadi Rum, the epitome of geologic pomp and circumstance (we may remember Anthony Quinn in Lawrence of Arabia, firing up the troops with the heartfelt cry: "To Wadi Rum!"). End your journey with a luxuriant visit to the Dead Sea and perhaps a visit to one of the Middle East’s most exquisite spas.
