Petra by Night

Petra is known for its majestic beauty and enchanting history, which can be admired both during the day and at night. Experiencing Petra by Night is one of the most breathtaking ways to see the UNESCO World Heritage site.  The magic of the “lost city” comes to life as some 1,500 candles are lit in front of the rock facade and are used to light up the park. 

Petra by Night is powerful and it highlights the unique structure and characteristics of this historical site. This unforgettable experience begins with a walk of the entire Siq towards the Treasury.

Tickets cost 17 JD and can be purchased directly at the Visitor Center. Children under 10 years can enter free of charge. Additionally, some hotel receptions may be permitted to sell tickets. Advance reservations are not possible, but unlimited tickets are available.

In order to enter Petra by Night, a valid daylight Petra ticket is required. If you have joined a Petra from Israel tour to Petra, you are eligible to join a Petra by Night tour.
