Your guide will show you the points of interest along the Siq as he unveils the history behind the ruins. Then suddenly the valley of Petra will appear in front of you, revealing the famous Khazane (Treasury). You then continue further into the site to visit the most famous monuments, carved in the red sandstone including the amphitheater, the tombs and facades, and the colonnaded street.
