9 days in Israel. Wanna squeeze Petra in for two days?
Save

Going to Israel for Christmas / New Year. As I don't have a lot of time and really don't think I'll go to the Middle East again any time soon, I quite like to do Israel and Petra in 9 days. My itinerary so far is:

24-25/12 Tel Aviv

26-27/12 Jerusalem

28/12 Bethelam

29/12 Dead Sea and Masada

30-31/12 Petra?

Flying back to London from Tel Aviv at midnight on the 1st of Jan.

I'm not sure how I can do Petra in those two days and get back to Tel Aviv. Seems like a pain to get around. Any suggestions?

First of all you do not need an entire day in Bethlehem. You can do that from Jerusalem half a day. How are you planning on doing this? By rental car? Flying into or out of Eilat?

Personally, I don't think this is a good plan. Save Petra for another trip. I don't think you have enough time and most of your time will be traveling.

it would be better to fly into Telaviv and out of Amman

that will save on cost ,time and backtracking

if you do that can enter Jordan from Eilat/Aqaba ,visit Petra and depart from Amman

cheers

If you want to travel back and forth from Israel it's a lot of travel time for a very short visit to Petra ...
