Make the climb up Mount Nebo, where the Prophet Moses is said to have died. From the top of the mountain, you'll have impressive views over the Jordan Valley and the Holy Land. You can also visit the church at the mountaintop to see more mosaics. 

Continue to the hilltop palace of Mukawir (Machaerus), where John the Baptist was said to have been imprisoned and executed. Learn the role of this hilltop palace in other Biblical characters' lives: Princess Salome, Princess Herodias, Tetrach Herod Antipas, and Herod the Great.

Admire the views over the Jordan Valley, and on a clear day, across to the Holy Land; and see the modern sculpture depicting Moses.

Mukawir
Afterward, continue to Mukawer (Machaerus); a fortified hilltop palace to the east of the Dead Sea, founded by Herod the Great. According to 1st-century Romano-Jewish scholar, Flavius Josephus, the fortress was where John the Baptist was imprisoned and beheaded in 32 A.D., with his head presented to Herod’s son, Herod Antipas, on a plate by Princess Salome. View the ruins of this once-palatial and impregnable fortress, making out the walls, baths, and even the hall where it’s believed that Salome danced.
