Itinerary

Day 1, Amman/ Jerash/ Madaba/ Mt. Nebo/ Amman

Pick up in Amman.  Proceed to visit the Greco-Roman City of Jerash, also known as the City of the thousand columns. Jerash showcases the grandeur of Imperial Rome (and is sometimes referred to as the Pompeii of the East). It is considered one of the largest, and most well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the World outside Italy. As the most pristine Decapolis City (meaning ten cities in Greek) in the modern world, Jerash’s  prosperity can be admired in the colonnaded main street and lovely Oval Piazza.  Departure to visit the Christian Town of Madaba “The City of Mosaics”. You will be visiting the St. George church with its mosaic map of the Holy Land from Byzantine times, and the Archaeological Park, which houses the remains of several Byzantine churches, including the amazing mosaics of the Church of the Virgin. The park complex includes a school for the restoration and conservation of ancient mosaics, and take a detour to Mount Nebo, the site of the endearing monastery. Return to Amman. (No accommodation booked).
