Jordan is perhaps the gem of the Middle East and is a “must visit” destination for history lovers and amateur archaeologists. Tour Jordan’s excellent museums, including The Exhibition of Arab Heritage and Recent Discoveries in the Department of Antiquities in Amman, the Amman Archaeological Museum, the Archaeological and the Anthropological Museums at the University of Jordan. Explore the Amman Citadel with its archeological sites and the Temple of Hercules. Head out to Al Maghtas to see where Christ was baptized and take the Desert Castle Loop to see ancient trading posts and hunting lodges. Don’t miss a trip to Karak Castle and Shobak Castle used by Crusaders. Walk through beautiful, mysterious Petra, visit a preserved Roman city at Jerash and ride a camel in the magnificent Wadi Rum Desert.
