Petra By Night, Petra - Wadi Musa

(2/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
A unique way to see the historic, rock-cut buildings and tombs, Petra By Night brings visitors up close to this 4th century BCE trading city. Plan ahead to attend a tour of the ruins, which begins with a walk through the Siq, a crevice between tall walls of rock that creates a natural tunnel for human passage. Lit by over 1,500 candles, the pathway and illuminated buildings at its end glow orange. Performers play Bedouin music and visitors each receive a cup of tea during the concert. Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes to prepare for the short desert hike. Tours occur only at specific times and are limited, so plan ahead. Arrange to visit Petra By Night and other attractions in Petra - Wadi Musa using our Petra - Wadi Musa holiday planner.

  • Little content. 10 m from flute and an unknown instrument. 10 m interest-free speech. The treasure is hidden by shadows when people stand in front of the lights. Too expensive and too little for the price and interest. I do not have.
