Places You Must See When You Go on a Holy Land Tour

Majestic sites.

After arriving in the capital city of Amman for a day of sightseeing, the tour kicks off to Mount Nebo—a 2,330 feet high plateau mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the location where Moses viewed the Promised Land (Israel). No hiking is required in this destination as the road leading here is already elevated. On the way out of Mount Nebo, you will also pass by the town of Madaba where the Byzantine church of Saint George is located. Inside, you will find the 6th century Madaba Mosaic Map seen on the floor of the church. This map is the oldest remaining cartographic depiction of the holy land.
