The small kingdom that has been of King Hussein and now of King Abdallah is a pacific nation and today substantially democratic; it is constituted by a territory predominantly desert rich in magnificent sceneries and archaeological treasures.
Apart the modest biblical and evangelical traces, on the Jordan territory magnificent Romans rests are met, first among these the splendid city of Jerasah.
But the true attractions are two: the magnificent site nabateo of Petra, the more spectacular archaeological place of the world together with Machu Picchu, with its monuments, its pinnacles, its canyonses and its colors and the splendid desert of the Wadi Rum, the desert of Lawrence of Arabia, with to alternate of sand and of rock, with the colors amber of the sandstones carved by the wind.
The small result on the Red Sea to Aqaba reserves very beautiful backdrops especially in the zone of the Royal Diving.
