- Short Breaks
Day 1 Amman/Dead Sea/Petra
Travel to Jordan and be whisked away from the airport straight to Mt Nebo. Moses is said to have sighted the Promised Land from here and, on a clear day, Jerusalem's spires and domes can be spotted across the expansive valley. After admiring church mosaics, head to the ultra-salty Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Float in peace at a private beach and don't be shy of wallowing in the mud - it's said to have healing properties. Indulge in a buffet lunch before travelling through mountainous landscapes to Petra.

Day 2 Petra
Rise early to avoid the heat, crowds and to see the effects that the morning light has on this magical city. Emerging from the Siq - a remarkably narrow gorge - to stand before the stunning Treasury facade is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With a local guide, continue past the expansive Amphitheatre to enjoy a picnic lunch with spectacular views. Later, explore the Monastery, the evocative Royal Tombs, the colonnaded street that was once lined with shops and the Temple of the Winged Lions. It's a big day of walking, but Petra's unforgettable sights make it completely worthwhile.

Day 3 Petra/Amman
Take one last opportunity to wander captivating Petra before returning to modern civilisation in Jordan's cosmopolitan capital of Amman.
