Amazing and beautiful. About a 2km walk to the theatre lit only by candlelight. A torch can help in the tricky places but doable without. Beautiful music and lights. Very special and moving

Very very very beautiful. Beware the live music is really really bad. Take headphones for the walk over there and try to bring a good camera that can capture candlelight. A veeeery beautiful experience.

We were quite surprised by how much we enjoyed this, considering how many people on TA poopooed this. I will say, this is not for people with a lack of attention span. If you can not sit still and be quiet for an hour and...More

I apologize for the late response but you will certainly have to exit and pay to return. They are two separate events that both require payment to enter.

Yes, you can purchase just before, BUT what a tacky show. You will see nothing of Petra either on the walk in (in the dark over uneven, rough and sandy surfaces - 1.5 km). The Treasury will be lit only with candles placed... More

From the entrance to siq takes more or less half an hour by walk (one way). However, you can opt to ride via horse, donky or camel but with extra fee, and I guess very expensive. And yes, just stay at the usual pathway which... More
