Having admired the mosaic, drive to Mount Nebo and take in the stunning views from the summit that extends over the Jordan Valley, and on a clear day, can stretch as far as Jericho and Jerusalem. Meet up with a local guide and go inside the excavated remains of the Byzantine church that once graced the hilltop. Then, return to your vehicle and make the drive back to your hotel in Amman.
