Petra By Night, Petra - Wadi Musa
(2/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • Walking through the siq illuminated with candles on the sides of the road we will do the 2.5 km for a typical musical spectacle of the Bedouin sitting in the dark with the lighting of the lights only drinking a tasty tea and contemplating the mute input of the Treasury of Petra. It which is then illuminated with colored lights to take photographs. Ideal to make a starry night.
