Explore the ancient city of Petra, which now stands as Jordan's most recognizable symbol. Once referred to as "a rose red city half as old as time", it is cut right from the surrounding rock and is interlaced with tunnels that reach deep into the heart of the surrounding mountain. Petra was the impressive capital of the Nabataean kingdom from around the 6th century BC. The place is so awesome that it even formed the backdrop for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and, let's be honest, if Indy loved it, surely it deserves a place on every PlanetHopper's! itinerary?
