Morning time we drive to the Jordan Valley, to Bethany at the Jordan River. This is the place where the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist took place. We also have a look at Elijah's Hill where Prophet Elijah ascended to heaven. Proceed to Mt. Nebo, the place where Prophet Moses gazed at the Promised Land before he died. You visit the old monastery and overlook the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea and parts of the Holy Land. After we proceed to Madaba, where to find the famous mosaic 6th century map of Palestine in St. George’s church. Continue to Machaerus, the hilltop stronghold of Herod the Great, King of Judea. His son Herod Antipas inherited the fortress. He ordered here the beheading of John the Baptist after Salome's fateful dance. You have to walk 30 minutes to reach the top of the hill. Return transfer to your Amman hotel or residence.
At the Baptism Site you will be taken with other visitors by shuttle bus closer to the Jordan River
