After breakfast, today our first stop will be in Jerash, this Greco-Roman city known as the “Pompeii of the East”.

We’ll explore the site taking in the colonnaded street, amphitheater and more. Then we will go for a drive through the beautiful Dibeen Forest on our way to Ajloun Castle. The Ajloun Castle protected the communication routes between south Jordan and Syria, and was one of a chain of forts that lit beacons at night to pass signals from the Euphrates as far as Cairo. Today, Ajloun Castle is a splendid sight with a fascinating labyrinth of towers, chambers, galleries and staircases to explore, while its hilltop position offers stunning views of the Jordan Valley.
