In 2007 Petra was voted one of the 7 New Wonders of the World, and a visit to this endlessly fascinating city quickly reveals why. The ancient metropolis combines architecture with panoramic views and great natural beauty, and exudes a captivating atmosphere of mystery. Explore awe inspiring constructions carved into the famous pink rock in Roman times and discover remains of the ancient Nabatean culture. From the first approach, a trip to Petra is truly magical. The city can only be accessed via the Siq, a narrow gorge of over 1km featuring stunning rock formations, which ends on the doorstep of AlKhazneh - the Treasury - one of Jordan’s most iconic sites, made famous in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Petra can also be accessed from Aqaba, where a charter flight operates during winter. Note: As some sites in Petra require climbing steps and uphill treks, the resort may not be suitable for people with walking difficulties.
