MY OWN PETRA GUIDE IN JORDAN
1. Petra Visitor Center
This map will you get at the main entrance when you buy your ticket. Petra Visitor Center is marked on the map below. It´s here the journey in Petra begins.
The ticket cost 50 JD/each. Its around 60 Euro.
2. As Siq
You will see many ruins and tombs along the road from the main entrance through Petra. But the first stop I would say is called “As Siq”.
3. The Treasury (Al- Khazneh)
Next stop is the great treasury that is best known from Petra. It is called “The Treasury” or “Al – Khazneh”. It´s two different names but same thing.
4. Royal Tombs
Then it is the stop named “Royal Tombs” which is awesome and located to your right hand side along the road. In this area there are several different tombs available which you can also walk inside and see how it looks like.
5. Colonnaded Street
Here is the “Colonnaded Street” and “The Great Temple” which ut very beautiful.
6. Qasar al- Bint
Here is the final stop called “Qasar al- Bint” if you have a guide with you. After that, you’re on your own and can stroll around, which is very nice because the guide have a tendency to rush you through Petra.
7. The Monastery
Do you want to continue and see “Ad-Deir Monastery”, located at the top about 1-1.5 hour’s hike from the end station with the guide, I would highly recommend you to do it. Do you have the strength left it is an amazing experience to see. Bring a water bottle and some snacks with you, you will surely need it!
8. Petra by night
Last but not least, do not forget “Petra by night” which is an amazing experience! Starting at 20.30 in the evening every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Make sure to be at the main entrance on time!
