Experience 3 of the most revered holy sites in Jordan on this full-day tour from Amman. See the famed Mosaic Map of Jerusalem in Madaba. Visit Mt. Nebo, where Moses gazed upon the Promised Land, and swim in the healing waters of the Dead Sea.
What to Expect
This full-day trip from Amman takes you to visit the astonishing Biblical sites of Madaba, Mount Nebo, and the Dead Sea.
Known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, Madaba is home to the Greek Orthodox Basilica of Saint George, which houses the famous 6th-century Mosaic Map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. With two million pieces of vividly colored stone, this stunning mosaic depicts geographical features as far as the Nile Delta, and is the oldest known representation of the Holy Land in the world.
Next, visit Mount Nebo ̶ one of the most important holy sites in Jordan. This is the very place where the prophet Moses gazed upon the Promised Land, and is the presumed site of his burial. From a platform in front of the church you can enjoy a breathtaking view across the Jordan Valley.
Afterward, venture to the lowest point on earth ̶ the Dead Sea. Here you can relax in the gentle, lapping waters, try the well-known healing powers of the mud from the sea’s floor, and enjoy leisure time at the beach before the return journey to Amman.
