Hidden amid the dramatic rock formations of Wadi Musa in Jordan, lies the ancient Nabataean city of Petra. Its magnificent facades were carved out of the red-hued rock more than 2,000 years ago; today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and in 2007 was voted one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

  • E. A.

    High enterance fee and with a guide is was even more (we did not take one). We walked all day and we could not even visit everything. Great holiday experience

    Wake up early and be in Petra no later than 7:30 AM. You won't regret it + you'll beat the crowds.

    GO VISIT! And start before 7! LOVELY!!!!

  • Alejandro H.

    Get in through the north east entrance, right next to the small village, at 2 PM. 20-min walk to the start of the stairs to The Monastery... Petra will be for you only, no people back to The Treasury.

    Alejandro Hdez · July 28
  • Clara W.

    the Monastery is not the only place worth visiting. for a less crowded, less strenuous experience w great views - try the High Place of Sacrifice instead!

    Clara Wu · July 19
  • Agneishca S.

    Must see!!!!

  • Brian P.

    It's the most expensive entrance fee I've ever paid, but well worth it! There is ancient energy flowing in this place...

    Brian Pagán · July 3
  • Ozlem K.

    A must for Jordan visitors; it would be nice to make the entrance fee cheaper

    Ozlem K · June 20
  • Paul D.

    It's a huge place. Set aside at least 2 days rather than a quick visit

    Breathtaking! Literally!

    The High Place of Sacrifice is very high. Worth the effort as the view is great. As is the hike up the 800+ steps to the Monastery. Its size will hold you with a superb view across towards Israel.

    Start early, head back to your hotel around three... Go for a swim, grab a quick dinner and come back for night at Petra!

    Worth visiting if you are ever in Jordan .. Best time to go is either in autumn or spring ..lots of walking so don't forget to wear your running shoes

    Majd Sourani · July 30, 2014
  • Lisa B.

    Start early. Take hat and lots of water.

    Lisa Bender · July 7, 2014
  • Yizhou J.

    Awesome awesome place. One tip is to not to hire a private guide or go all the way to the monastery if you are pressed on time. Instead do the 2 hiking trails in between the Treasury and the Theater.

    Yizhou Jin · June 19, 2014
  • Hot S.

    If you need a good workout💪. This is it. Wear closed shoes, hat,sunscreen, long sleeves & don't forget your water. Start early in the morning, if your walking. Toilets are available through the route

    Best to go around 8:30am to njoy without getting burnt.only snacks available so better take lunch along or fruits since it's a Gud 4-5 hr tour.toilets available so keep sipping water.

    Aastha Chopra · March 31, 2014
  • Susana H.

    Impressive site, with all the monuments and tombs carved and polished on the montains. The monastery is worth a visit (850 steps up), it's facade is bigger than the Treasue and the view is amazing

    Susana Henriques · February 9, 2014
  • André B.

    Beautiful! Must visit!

  • TOmasU

    Take a pair of normal shoes as you'll need to walk a lot. Don't forget to put on pants which are not very precious as there are a lot of dusts :) p.s. The smell during the walk is shitty

    TOmasU · November 13, 2013
  • Sara A.

    Love it ♥ but never gonna do it again :)

    Sara Al Muhaisen · October 17, 2013
  • Khaled A.

    Stunning scenery. People are generally friendly. Prepare yourself for a LOT of walking, sun exposure and horse dung smell. Don't stop at The Treasury, walk on for more beautiful things.

    Khaled Akbik · October 17, 2013
  • Mss Kate C.

    Rich food at good prices. near the entrance to Petra. They have free wifi, and computers to connect to the internet and pass cards photos to cd

    Mss Kate ConBotas · September 2, 2013
  • Mss Kate C.

    Very pretty! recommended to wake up early to see it at the sunrise and not be surrounded by bustling tours

    Mss Kate ConBotas · September 2, 2013
  • Hatim .

    It's a great adventure to go to !

    Hatim 💫 · August 10, 2013
  • Isabelle C.

    Don't pay too much and always bargain!! 15$ per person from the treasury to the entrance on any animal is reasonable.

    Isabelle Catherine-Elaine · July 21, 2013
  • Isabelle C.

    Plan this trip when having lots of time!! There is a lot to see!! Dress lightly, as its very hot. Walk down to the treasury and the old city first and then take an animal (camel, horse or donkey).

    Isabelle Catherine-Elaine · July 21, 2013

    great place!

    The pushy vendors are from the Bedouin tribe told to leave their homes there decades back - the right to hustle tourists must be a trade off

    Tony McMahon · June 11, 2013
  • Scott G.

    Be sure to go all the way in, and get to royal tombs, monastery, and remains of 3 Byzantine churches. Spend a whole day or two. Named one of 7 wonders of the modern world!

    Scott Gillis · April 21, 2013
  • Helena M.

    Take a scarf Help windy or hot weather

    Helena Mendri · April 4, 2013
  • Samuel Z.

    Great place! Do not skip the rise to the monastery and the views to the mountains beyond monastery!!! Unpleasant local "street sellers" include children.
