The tree of life is well preserved, also many interesting mosaic of different era. The roman road is impressive, made by huge block of stone, lead to Jelusalem and Damascus. Staffs show that how color of Mosaic change and revive with a spray of clear water, very interesting.
As we walked around the first of two archeological parks in Madaba, we were struck by how few people there were. In fact, we were the only ones (family of five). Given what we were seeing, we were very surprised as the mosaics on display were incredible. Many of them were found underneath people's houses in recent times. They have... 更多
We had some difficulty getting a bus to Madaba. We didn't want a taxi, everyone else seems to be able to bus for 1JD. Anyway we finally managed with the aid of our taxi driver to get a bus from the North Station. Madaba is an hour bus ride and some parts of the city are quite difficult to enjoy... 更多

But here it's another pile of rocks and mosaics with pigeons all around, few guards or tourists, but some good explanatory signage (courtesy of USAID grant). Beautiful to wander through and imagine yourself two thousand years prior, walking... 更多
The mosaic on floors and walls was so energising to the spirit . It was a great experience . Did not expect so many treasures there . Walking through the excavation site and the house where people lived till 1972 , probably not even aware of the historic significance of mosaic on their floor . I was quite caught up... 更多
We rented a car and drove it on our own. It was a nice day with plenty to keep us busy. The hand craft work shops have artists making the mosaics, amazing to see the time and energy spent. Lots of shops in the area, things are a bit pricey. Having a guide for this would be advised.
We had already seen many Madaba mosaics when we arrived here on our walking tour of Madaba which we had followed a bit randomly . we paid our 3JD entrance fees and then the guide came out of the ticket office and showed us the exhibits. We were the only tourists there so I don't know if he always does... 更多
