The ancient city of Petra was a city that was built in the sides of mountains. The entry ways are massive (14 feet on average) and will provide you access to over 3,000 year-old trading items and rooms. Since the stone used in the production of the city is so strong, it has been able to weather the elements and survive for long periods of time with little to no ware. You can visit Petra in Jordan and there are a variety of resorts that you could visit on your stay.
1. Great Pyramid of Giza
