When we leave Amman and head south toward Petra, we stop in Madaba. It is known for its Byzantine mosaics, including the earliest surviving map of the Holy Land. Set in a mosaic floor, the map dates to about the sixth century. After lunch here, we traveled along the picturesque Kings Way, an international trade route for the last 5000 years with many historic sites mentioned in the Bible.
