Ryanair are offering a great opportunity to fly from Cologne to Aqaba, Jordan, the go-to destination if you want to visit the spectacular ruins of Petra and Wadi Rum! You can book a ticket from only €29 for a roundtrip!
Known for its authentic Middle Eastern culture and hospitable locals, Jordan is a land of fascinating contrasts and history. Apart from the legendary rock-cut temples of Petra and the very site where Jesus Christ is thought to have been baptized, you can explore the Roman, Ottoman, Persian and Egyptian relics, as well as deserts and beach resorts.
Set in the southern heartlands of the country, roughly a 3-hour drive from Amman, this world-famous archaeological site was first inhabited in the 4th century BC. It was the ancestral capital of the thriving Arabian civilization, which managed to raise the rock-cut treasuries and temples here. This magnificent ancient city was one of the most important trading outposts in the region.
The carved Nabataean ruins of Petra come hidden away in the craggy mountains, between a series of winding passageways that are a real treat to explore. Today, this incredible site is known for its roles in movies like 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade', 'The Mummy Returns' or 'Queen of the Desert'.
