Learn about the mosaics’ history from your guide, and view other mosaics and art dating from the two early medieval baptisteries that once stood here.

Next, continue to the town of Madaba, home to the famous Mosaic Map and Madaba Archaeological Park. With a local guide, head inside the 19th-century St. George’s Church to see the Mosaic Map, a stunning 6th-century artwork depicting the Holy Land of the time.

Wander around this richly detailed masterpiece, the world’s oldest image of the region, admiring its renderings of the Dead Sea, Jericho, and other biblical locations, as well as Jerusalem.

Then, stroll to the nearby open-air archaeological park that showcases the remains of Byzantine churches, a Roman street, and a 6th-century villa. Inspect the antiquities here, and admire the villa’s showpiece mosaic, with its scenes of the four seasons and Greek gods.

Finally, return to the Dead Sea where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.
