While visitors to Petra will certainly serve themselves by lingering in and around the ancient lost city for a few days, time isn’t always on the traveler’s side. If you’re pressed for time, it’s possible to take a day trip to Petra from other cities in Jordan, allowing you to see the highlights without taking up too many of your vacation days.

One of the most common places to day trip from is Amman, a city located 140 miles (225 kilometers) from Petra. A private day trip to Petra from Amman starts with pick-up from your hotel, followed by a drive through the desert to the UNESCO-listed ancient city with an English-speaking driver. A couple of hours with your own private guide gives you plenty of time to walk through the Siq and into Petra to see the Treasury, Theater and other highlights before returning to Amman. 

Group day trips to Petra from Amman offer an affordable alternative, often including hotel pickup, transfer to Petra in an air-conditioned coach and a guided tour of the ancient city’s boulevards, tombs, temples and facades.

You needn’t even stay in Jordan to enjoy the iconic sights of Petra. Day trips also depart from Tel Aviv, which include round-trip airfare to Eilat, transfer to Petra and five to six hours to take in the sights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
