About this tour

Departure from JETT office Abdali  at 8:00 (Location)

Departure from JETT office 7th Circle at 8:30 (Location)

Start to visit the St. George Church in Madaba , with its famous mosaic map. Drive to Mt. Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land. Then to Baptism Site “Bethany beyond the Jordan” (Al-Maghtas) is located in the Jordan Valley, north of the Dead Sea. The site contains two distinct archaeological areas, Tell el-Kharrar, also known as Jabal Mar Elias, and the area of the Churches of St. John the Baptist. “Bethany beyond the Jordan” is of immense religious significance to the majority of denominations of Christian faith, who have accepted this site as the location where Jesus of Nazareth was baptized by John the Baptist

HIGHLIGHTS

  • This friendly town located about an hour's drive south of Amman has a large percentage of Jordan's shrinking Christian population. Noteworthy sites in Madaba include St. George's Greek Orthodox Church and the Church of the Virgin, both of which house splendid antique mosaics. Madaba is best known for its wealth of mosaics, most of which date back to the Byzantine era. Additional attractions in town include an archaeological park, a museum, and more historic churches.
