Exclusive Shore Event: Aqaba | Ancient Treasures in the Red Rose City
About two hours inland from Jordan's port of Aqaba lies Petra, ancient capital of the Nabataean kingdom and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Built more than 2,000 years ago by these once powerful merchant-traders, this rock-carved city hides innumerous passages, gorges, and tombs behind ornate facades. Upon arrival, we approach the site on foot through the awe-inspiring Siq, a narrow, near mile-long gorge with rock walls reaching 260 feet high. The chasm opens to reveal the intricately carved Treasury (Al Khazneh), which many will recognize from the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Further afield lies Qasr al Bint, one of the few freestanding temples in Petra.
After exploring the site, we depart back through the Siq for lunch at the Mvenpick Resort; its use of natural stone, handcrafted woods, and Middle Eastern fabrics creates a true sense of place while enjoying several starters, freekeh (wheat grain) with chicken, and orange-scented mouhalabieh (milk pudding) for dessert.
Approximate Length: 9 hours, 30 minutes
Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire, sun protection, and comfortable walking shoes. This excursion requires 3 to 4 hours of walking (approximately 4 miles round-trip, at times in direct sunlight) over a loose shale road through a high-altitude desert canyon. It is not recommended for anyone with walking difficulties, short in stamina, or in a wheelchair. There may be a limited number of independently operated donkey carts available; however, there is no way to reserve these in advance and guests must be able to stand upright in the cart during the ride, which can be rough at times. Guests unable to visit the site are welcome to wait at a meeting place, pre-arranged with your Virtuoso Voyages host and guide, and continue with the group for lunch.
As a Virtuoso Voyages Member, choose this exclusive shore event, onboard credit(s), hotel packages including special amenities or private excursions. Consult your Virtuoso Travel Professional for options available on this particular sailing.
PLEASE NOTE: All Virtuoso events ashore are capacity controlled and require a minimum number of participants to operate. Events are subject to change without notice. These events are individually tailored for each date and arrival. Your event could be different than what's noted here; but it will be designed to be memorable and to bring you a traveler's view that you will treasure, and would otherwise miss entirely. Final details will be outlined in program letters provided by your Virtuoso host aboard ship.
