The Petra Visitor Center lies just outside the site of Petra. It is your first stop before you head to the gate that leads into the protected area. The center is open daily and you must purchase your tickets for entering Petra from here.

The ancient site of Petra and its Visitor Center are open to visitors on a daily basis from 6am to 6pm during the summer and 6am to 4pm in the winter. The Visitor Center sells tickets, arranges for guides and provides information and help to visitors.

Entry into the site of Petra is only permitted to visitors holding valid tickets. These are available at the Visitor Center and can be purchased on arrival. Prices differ for foreigners and locals and a range of ticket types are available depending on the length of stay and number of visits to be made into Petra.

Directions: You can watch my high resolution photo of Petra on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 30 19' 28.96" N 35 28' 3.90" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Visitor?s Centre.
