The Lost Stone City

  8 votes

Petra, an amazing place, a huge complex of buldings carved in the rock. Amazing tombs wich seem palaces, amphitheater, fountains, monolites, sacrifice altar and of course, a museum. You find misticism and history in the same place, legends and daily life.

Favourite spots:
Walking through the cliff called the Siq and find at the end one of the greatest buldings the treasury is a great feeling. Climb all the way up(more than 1 hour in my case) to admire the Monastery is really, really worth. At the end of your day you can take a break and drink a cup of delicious hot tea. The soliders tomb, and the Lion fountain are nice to see.

What's really great:
To have a sit on a cliff and have the most wonderful view of the mountains that sourround Petra is something I'll never erase from my mind.

The Lost City of Petra, you have to buy a ticket for 1,2 or 3 days, depends on how many time do you want to spend inside. 2 days is my advice, this will cost you around 50usd.

A nice small room with 2 beds and private toilet in a hotel called Cleopetra was 6 dinars.

Muslims don't drink but... you can find a nice club next to the entrance of Petra. You can find a cold beer there.

Lots of small restaurants in every street.

Other recommendations:
You must visit the small sand craft stores, you can bring an original and beautiful souvenir.
