What a surprise! This was such an unexpected pleasure, we had not even realised it was there. The neolithic village good have done with more information - especially if you do not have a guide. But the Nabatean ruins were worth seeing.

It doesn't take long to walk through Little Petra. The site is small and peaceful - the opposite of Petra. The carvings into the stone are of a small scale, but are beautiful. Look out for the one with the frescos - they are exquisite, but do be careful clambering up! If you have the time, climb the steps at... More

Nice place to walk around for about an hour. Has some nabatean tombs and beautifull rock formations. Plan to go here before you go to the big Petra, or else it's just not worth the bother.

A bit like real Petra, but rather different in most respects. Its much smaller, has steps disappearing into nowhere every few steps and then a climb at the end to a café and view point. locals man the gift shops and are delighted to haggle already cheapish prices down to bargain ones.

this site is fabulous in it's own way, as unlike the big Petra, you can go inside the caves/buildings etc. which made a big difference. The bedouin very hospitable in their little cafe, we had a fabulous day and also visited the neolithic foundations next to little petra which was an added bonus

we did this the second afternoon. There is no real need for a guide and most can be seen in 40 minutes. There was haunting music playing as we got into the siq. I looked into a cave room and there was a young man playing a flute and I offered a tip but this was refused as he was... More

I visited on morning and had the siq to myself. The siq is shorter than the one at Petra but more interesting as it contains buildings some with wonderful facades and including one with the remains of paintings. At the end of the siq there are steep stairs and a short scramble to a ledge at the top of the... More

Little Petra is an absalute must see. It is only 8km outside the main site and the scenery on route is a real treat. You can see everything here in less than an hour and there is no need to climb ( though if you want to you can). You approach through a short narrow gorge whichever open out to... More
