From your hotel in Amman our driver will pick you up then after a short drive, arrive to Machaerus which is known today as Mukawir. The hilltop stronghold of Herod the Great. Upon Herod’s death, his son Herod Antipas inherited the fortress and it is from here that he ordered John the Baptist to be beheaded after Salome’s fateful dance of the seven veils.
Next stop is Madaba to view the oldest preserved ancient mosaic map of the Holy Land dating back to the 6th century BC located within the Church of St. George.
Continue the drive to Mt. Nebo. Retrace the steps of Moses and admire the spectacular view of the Promised Land just as he did over 2,000 years before. It is very easy to feel that you have arrived some place special.
Afterward we drive to the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, where you have leisure time at the beach and the chance to float in the water, have relaxation and lunch then head back to yor hotel in Amman.
