Starting from your Dead Sea location, our driver will collect you and proceed to the Baptism Site, Bethany "Beyond Jordan" (Al-Maghtas). Positioned on the eastern bank of the River Jordan, nine kilometers north of the Dead Sea, this Christian pilgrimage site is thought to be where Jesus of Nazareth was baptized by John the Baptist. It boasts Roman and Byzantine remnants, including churches, chapels, and a monastery.
Following this, the journey leads to Mt. Nebo, retracing the footsteps of Moses and capturing the breathtaking view of the Promised Land, much as he did over 2,000 years ago. On clear days, Jerusalem, Jericho, and the Dead Sea come into view. A memorial in honor of Moses stands at the entrance to the early Byzantine Christian church, believed to be the site of his passing.
Concluding this leg of the trip, a brief drive brings you to Madaba. Here, you'll marvel at the oldest preserved ancient mosaic map of the Holy Land, dating back to the 6th century BC, within the Church of St. George. After a rewarding exploration of the city's mosaics, we'll smoothly transfer you back to your hotel in the Dead Sea.
