Need help with Tel Aviv, Petra, Amman and Jerusalem itinerary

Jump to last reply

We have 10 days from the time we land in Tel Aviv until the time we leave. We would like to spend a couple days in Tel Aviv, Petra, Jerusalem and perhaps a day in Amman. I realize this is a bit rushed, but that's all the time we have and we really would like to hit those four spots, even though we could probably spend more time in each. Below is the first draft of an itinerary I have worked out and I am hoping I can get some feedback - positive or negative. We are going in July:

Day 1 (Thursday) - arrive in Tel Aviv at 8:30am. Get to our hotel and spend the day in Tel Aviv.

Day 2 (Friday) - spend the day in Tel Aviv but take the midnight bus to Eilat

Day 3 (Saturday) - arrive in Eilat at 5am. Take taxi to Jordan border. Wait for it to open at 8am. Cross and make our way to Petra. If there is time and we have the energy, spend a few hours in Petra

Day 4 (Sunday) - spend the day in Petra

Day 5 (Monday) - spend the day in Petra. Supposedly it closes at 6pm so take a bus to Amman that evening

Day 6 (Tuesday) - spend the day in Amman

Day 7 (Wednesday) - travel to Jerusalem via the King Hussein bridge. I realize this could go quickly or take all day. We would be leaving early in the morning.

Day 8 (Thursday) - spend day in Jerusalem

Day 9 (Friday) - spend day in Jerusalem. Take bus back to Tel Aviv that evening

Day 10 (Saturday) - spend day in Tel Aviv

Day 11 (Sunday) - fly out of Tel Aviv first thing in the morning

So...does this make sense, other than the rushed nature of it? I don't know if almost three full days in Tel Aviv is warranted, but the hotel at which we will stay is right on the beach and my wife and step daughter are excited about spending time at the beach so I know they will be OK with it.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
