Walk in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, Moses the Prophet and Emperor Hadrian as you explore this middle eastern gem. You'll discover the lowest point on earth, the magical Dead Sea! Cover yourself in mud and float on its salty waters, before the climb up Mount Nebo, the very spot Moses looked across to the 'Promised Land'.
