How many days for Israel/Jordan?

Hi, we are researching our possible Israel/Jordan trip, and wondering how many days needed in each destination to hit the highlights. Trying to keep this, if possible, around the 10 day mark (including travel). Looking at late April.

Things we would like to do:

Petra (thinking 2 days, allowing for a nighttime visit)

Dead Sea (1 day should be sufficient, right? Does not matter which side)

Jerusalem/Bethlehem

Those are our MUST DOs. Wouldn't mind some time in Tel Aviv or Amman if possible.

Thank you!! (cross posting to the Israel forum)

Welcome to Jordan

My modest suggestion:

DAY 1 Arrival - Amman

DAY 2 Jerash - Ajloun - Amman

DAY 3 Amman - Madaba - Nebo - Kerak - Petra

DAY 4 Petra

DAY 5 Petra - Wadi Rum - Dead Sea

DAY 6 Dead Sea (Via Allenby Border) to Jerusalem

DAY 7 Jerusalem

DAY 8 Jerusalem - Bethlehem - Masada - Jerusalem

DAY 9 Jerusalem - Tel-Aviv

DAY 10 Departure from Tel Aviv

Please, do not hesitate to contact me for any inquiry

Enjoy

I would suggest a slightly different itinerary for Israel:

(preceding Day 5 - as posted by AlihH)

DAY 5 Petra - Wadi Rum - EILAT (ISRAEL) via Arava border crossing

DAY 6 Eilat - Dead Sea (including Masada National Park) to Jerusalem

DAY 7 Jerusalem

DAY 8 Jerusalem & Bethlehem

DAY 9 Jerusalem

DAY 10 - Jerusalem, later transfer from Jerusalem to Ben Gurion int'l airport (code: TLV) by Nesher shuttle (the official airport service).
