Full description
Following pick-up from your hotel in Muscat, journey to the oasis city of Nizwa and explore the former capital of Oman during the Julanda Dynasty of the 6th and 7th centuries AD.

Marvel at the imposing structure of Nizwa Fort, standing as a vivid reminder of the important status the city once held. Also famous for its silver jewelry and handmade daggers (khanjar), still found in the Nizwa Souq, Nizwa is one of the oldest cities in Oman and home to a number of renowned mosques.

Continue to Bahla, thought to be one of the oldest forts in Oman and best known for its pottery workshops and huge clay fort (photo stop only). Then, proceed to Jabrin Fort, built in 1675 as an important center of learning for astrology, medicine and Islamic law. Marvel at the intricately decorated interior of the 300-year old fortifications before your return to Muscat.
