Red desert sands, steep mountainsides and flowering oases - the legendary settings for the Arabian Nights are just as captivating as the stories themselves. Discover the great legacy of the Orient in magnificent sultans' palaces, which still today are representative centres of power. Travel way back into the past to the era of the Nabateans and the Pharaohs. Evidence of their former powers are recorded for posterity in the rock city of Petra and the Pyramids - just as your magical experience of the Middle East will be etched in your memory for ever.
