The Nabateans carved this city in stone with simple tools 1500 years ago, and nothing will prepare you for the beauty and the sheer size of Al Khazna! Mark my words when it starts peeking at you by the end of the Siq (the pathway to Petra)!

After our visit, we proceed for a 90 minutes’ drive to Wadi Rum! The valley of the moon, we arrive to the camp (and we bet you’re hungry by then) for a Bedouin specialty dinner: ZARB. What’s that you may ask? Well, it’s a mix of meat like lamb and chicken, rice, potatoes and carrots, placed in a hole in the ground, which is filled with flaming coals. The hole is then covered, and after a few hours, the meat and rice are all smoked, steamed, and grilled, all at the same time!

After dinner, you can enjoy a night of stargazing since there is no light pollution in the area. Overnight in your camp in Wadi Rum.

Day 6: Wadi Rum / Dead Sea

After breakfast, we’ll go exploring the Martian like desert in a 4X4 pick up for a couple of hours, we visit Al Khaza’ali which is a natural rock formation that mimics the Siq in Petra, Lawrence spring, enjoy Bedouin tea with local Bedouins.

Later we are off to the lowest point on earth, some 430 meters below sea level, lays the Dead Sea, the saltiest lake in the world. The Dead Sea water is so rich in minerals and have high therapeutic value. We enjoy a day of relaxation by the Dead Sea beach. Over night in your dead sea resort.

Athens city tour from pireaus port.

Written By juan alfredo escobar

Visit Kastella in Piraeus to admire the beautiful panoramic views and behold the Panathenaic Stadium (Kallimarmaro). Also, explore the Acropolis & go to Plaka for a bit of shopping. Greece is well known for its spectacular ruins and historical city centers, and this tour doesn’t disappoint! Book this popular tour now and remember to bring your camera.

  • Spend the day being introduced to the archaeological sites by your Athens tour guide, including the Acropolis, Parthenon, and the Panathenaic Stadium.

  • Stop by Syntagma Square and, if you’re lucky, watch the changing of the guards near the Parliament House.

  • Visit Kastella with its winding streets and 19th-century mansions.

  • Make your way over to Panathenaic Stadium, or Kallimarmaro (“beautiful marble”), the only one in the world made entirely of marble. Athenian Roman Senator Herodes Atticus rebuilt the original stadium in marble in 144 CE with a capacity of 50,000 seats. Largely abandoned a few centuries later with the rise of Christianity, the stadium was excavated in the 19th century and put back into use as an Olympic venue in 2004.

  • Explore the Temple of Zeus and you will see 16 of its 104 giant Corinthian columns that survived invasions and quarries of the temple for building materials. This temple took 638 years to complete and was the largest one in Greece.
