Petra is one of the most unique sites in the whole world. It's a city full of tombs and monuments carved into stone cliffs. From the third century B.C., it used to be the capital of the Nabatean kingdom. You'll be impressed by Petra at any time of the year. But mind that in summer, it gets really hot, while in winter, harsh winds and desert storms are possible.​
