Meet a driver at your Dead Sea hotel, then begin the trip to Jerash in a climate-controlled vehicle; Jerash is 51 miles (82 km.) from the northern edge of the Dead Sea. Upon arrival at the ancient city, known historically as Gerasa, meet a local guide for a guided tour of the site.
Your private tour of Jerash covers the city’s key sites. Start at the Arch of Hadrian, the imposing main gate of the city, then see the oval forum, a stunning plaza surrounded by a long colonnade. Continue to fountains and public baths, and see the footprint of the high walls that once protected the city.
Visit the theaters and temples where ancient people gathered for worship, politics, and entertainment, and get a glimpse of daily life under the Roman Empire. Following your time in Jerash, meet back up with the driver for the return trip to the Dead Sea, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
