COMING SOON: Inside Jordan: Arts, Culture, and History
Join the Authors Guild Foundation on a once-in-a-lifetime, all-inclusive trip to Jordan. We’ve designed this visit to explore both ancient and contemporary Jordan, where we’ll hear unique perspectives on the region from locals of all walks of life.
Your trip will include:
Northern Jordan: The city of Jerash/Gerasa, one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of the Roman Decapolis, and the lush, green, hilly agricultural cities of the north, including Umm Qais
Eastern Desert: The Umayyad desert castles and the disappearing wetlands of the Azraq reserve in the middle of a barren, rocky landscape
Wadi Rum: 4x4 jeep tour of the desert, and a traditional Bedouin barbeque and stargazing overnight at a luxury tent camp
Petra: The rose-red city carved into the rocks, a UNESCO heritage site and one of the new seven wonders of the world.
Mt. Nebo: Where Moses is said to have looked upon the Holy Land, and Bethany Beyond the Jordan, the baptism site
Madaba: The famous city of mosaics, including a 6th-century map of the Holy Land, with a significant Christian population and beautiful handicrafts, such as weaving, tile work, ceramics, jewelry, and embroidery
Dead Sea: Floating, swimming, spas, and sun at the lowest point on earth, with sunset cocktails and dinner by the shores
Amman: Contemporary galleries, villas, gardens, and current projects and developments in the region amid ancient souks, ruins, and museums
On top of these sites, we’re arranging unique cultural components, such as private meals in local homes; meetings with Druze, Bedouin, and other groups to learn about their cultures and lifestyles; guided tours of archeological sites and art galleries by experts in their fields; private events and concerts; and more. We will also meet with local journalists, authors, and publishing professionals.
