Where to go for two days in AMM... Jerash? Mt Nebo/Dead Sea?

Hi,

We will have 2 days in the Amman area, and would like advice on where to go. We are staying at the Mariam Hotel in Madaba. Right now, this is what I am thinking for the itinerary:

Sat Dec 17 - Arrive at 17:20 to AMM and take transport through the hotel to Madaba.

Sun Dec 18 - Visit Mount Nebo, Dead Sea, and Bethany via taxi.

Mon Dec 19 - Take a shared taxi to Petra via King' Highway with stops at Wadi Mujeb and karak castle arranged through the hotel (http://www.mariamhotel.com/trips.html)

I would also like to see the Roman Theater in Amman and Jerash, but I think time is going to limit us here. Any suggestions? We are young and enjoy aggressive itineraries :-)

Thanks so much!!

I think you need an extra day and it's good to see some sight and enjoy more to visit everything and you will not enjoy completely

I wish you a pleasant journey

Hi,

a short visit with,, two full days... !! as you are young and enjoy an aggressive itinerary.

- forget Roman Theater in Amman ,,,, for Dec18 until midday; Nebo, Dead Sea, and Bethany (aka as the baptism site ) then do Jerash, which has two magnificent theaters.. a long day but it can be done,,

- Dec. 19 try skipping Karak, as it will add over an hour for such a long day,,

Mujib (will be a stop and view)

Dana (will be a stop and view)

you do need the max. time in Petra for a day visit..

ciao
