Jordan’s Petra is one of the most impressive archaeological sites our world has to offer. With more than 800 monuments that stretch over an area of 264 square kilometers, it is no surprise it was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. A common misconception is that Petra only includes the iconic Treasury facade, carved into the sandstone that you see on posters.
The park’s sheer size requires a significant amount of hiking, and you’ll have so much else to do in Jordan, so you won’t be able to see everything in Petra. But stretching your visit to Petra across two days will allow you to see the best Petra has to offer. It also gives you the opportunity to meet local Bedouins who have lived in Petra for decades. Here is our suggested itinerary:
Enter Petra through main entrance and take the Siq to the Treasury.
Hike from treasury to the High Place of Sacrifice and exit toward the Royal Tombs.
Exit back through the main entrance, past the Treasury.
If you have a different itinerary for your group, we still recommend taking as much time as possible to see the wonders of Petra.
