Continue to Mount Nebo, one of the most revered holy sites of Jordan, and the place where Moses was buried. A small Byzantine church was built there by early Christians, and if you stand on the platform in front of the church, you can admire the view. It overlooks the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea across to the rooftops of Jerusalem and Bethlehem and is absolutely breathtaking. Finish the tour with free time at the Dead Sea.
