Stand on Mt Nebo and survey the land promised to Moses; unwrap a scarf or two at Mukawir, where Salome cast a spell over men in perpetuity; float in the Dead Sea, beside a pillar of salt, reputed to be Lot's disobedient wife; go just about anywhere in Jordan and you'll find every stone bares a tale, and those of Madaba's legendary mosaics tell more tales than most.
Petra, the jewel in the crown of Jordan's antiquities, is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The magnificent rock-hewn city of the Nabateans has been a favorite destination for Europeans since the 19th century, and at sunset on a winter's day, when the rose-pink city catches alight, it is easy to see why this enchanting place has charmed generations of visitors.
