A trip to Madaba will delight most history enthusiasts: the small, friendly town boasts a plethora of exquisite Byzantine mosaics, decorating its buildings and archaeological sites.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Jerash Ruins and The Citadel. Mount Nebo and Al Balad – Downtown Amman are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Madaba's surroundings by going to Amman (Jabal Al Lweibdeh, Roman Amphitheater, & more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at O Beach.

To see maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Madaba trip planning website .

Manchester, UK to Madaba is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Manchester to Madaba due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Manchester in November, plan for much hotter days and a bit warmer nights in Madaba: temperatures range from 24°C by day to 8°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Petra - Wadi Musa.
