You then have some free time for walking/shopping in the old downtown area of the city before we head off to visit the Greco-Roman City of Jerash, also known as the City of the Thousand Columns. Jerash showcases the grandeur of Imperial Rome (and is sometimes referred to as the Pompeii of the East). It is considered one of the largest, and most well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the World outside Italy. As the most pristine Decapolis City (meaning ten cities in Greek) in the modern world, Jerash's prosperity can be admired in the colonnaded main street and lovely Oval Piazza.

Today we have a whole day to explore the King's highway, which was once part of the ancient Silk Road. We visit the Christian Town of Madaba "The City of Mosaics" and the St. George church with its mosaic map of the Holy Land from Byzantine times, the Archaeological Park, which houses the remains of several Byzantine churches, including the amazing mosaics of the Church of the Virgin. The park complex includes a school for the restoration and conservation of ancient mosaics. We also visit Bani Hamida weaving center and meet with the locals. After lunch we take a detour to visit the Monastery in Mount Nebo before continuing via Wadi Al Mujib, a deep valley offering one of Jordan's most breathtaking views. Our journey then takes us to the city of Kerak, where we visit the Crusader's Castle, with its diverse history dated from the Byzantine to the Mamluk period, and get to know the architectural military brilliance of the Crusaders. We then head south to Dana for dinner at our hotel. Meals: B, L, D
