Walk from here to the Street of Facades, the Royal Tombs and Pharaoh's Castle, and if you wish, explore further amazing structures including the Monastery and the High Place of Sacrifice.

Day 6 - Wadi Rum - Desert Castles - Amman
After breakfast we leave Wadi Rum, headed for the desert castles of the East. The first castle we visit is Qasr Al Kharaneh, located 55 km away from Amman. It is probably the only castle which had a military function, as shown by its architecture. We move on to Qasr Amra, standing to the south west of Azraq, on an island in a wadi which is almost always dry. This small, well preserved castle features clean lines with rounded walls of yellow stone the same colour as the desert, a camouflage allowing it to blend into the landscape. Qasr Amra was built in the early VIII century by the caliphate Walid I who particularly enjoyed hunting, poetry, and other pleasures within its surroundings. Next we visit Qasr Al Azraq, greatly affected by an earthquake in 1927; however the castle remains a magnificent building. The inscription above the main gate allowed archaeologists to date the restoration to the XIII century, the supposed date of the mosque built in the centre of the castle courtyard. We finish our tour back in the vibrant capital of the Kingdom, Amman.
Overnight in our specially chosen hotel in Amman.
On your final day we transfer you to the airport at a convenient time for your check-in and homeward travels.
