After roughly an hour, arrive in Madaba and visit St George’s Church, the 19th-century basilica that’s home to the Madaba Mosaic Map. Head inside and marvel at this 6th-century masterpiece: a richly detailed rendering of the Holy Land with meticulous depictions of ancient Jerusalem, Jericho and other Biblical sites.
Continue to Mt Nebo, the hill where Moses is said to have been granted a view of the Promised Land. Absorb the vistas over the Jordan Valley, and then admire the floor mosaics of the excavated Byzantine church on the summit. These meticulously created artworks illustrate bulls, peacocks and human figures, and remain wonderfully vivid and fresh-looking.
Next, travel to Amman for a city tour. Jodern’s capital boasts plenty of history and sights, and your driver will take you around its highlights. See the downtown market, traditional souks, churches and mosques, and catch views of King Hussein’s palace, where the late king is buried.
Along the way, take in Amman’s two showstoppers. Walk around the Roman, Byzantine and Islamic-era ruins of the Citadel, and visit the Roman Theatre. This gigantic structure is the most visible remnant of Roman Philadelphia, the ancient city that once stood where Amman now stands.
Afterward, enjoy a drop-off at your hotel where your tour ends.
