Start your Amman City sightseeing with a visit to the King Abdulla Mosque which was completed in 1989 as a memorial by the late King Hussein to his grandfather. Then pay a visit to the Amman Citadel and Roman Amphitheater.
Roman Amphitheater is considered one of the largest in the Middle East. Its construction dates back to the beginning of the second century AD by Emperor Trajan. It is carved into the mountain and its seats are built in a way to keep people away from the direct sunlight most of the day. Its acoustic design is very advanced. The Public Department of ruins has renovated the theatre and it is now used to host many national, public and artistic events.
Jerash, located 48 km north of Amman and nestled in a quiet valley among the mountains of Gilead, is the grandeur of Imperial Rome being one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the World outside Italy. To this day, its paved and collonaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates remain in exceptional condition.
This fascinating city makes a great day-trip from Amman, particularly in spring, when the wildflowers are in bloom. The drive will take you less than an hour but will transport you 2000 years back in time.
After visiting Jerash our driver will bring you back to your hotel.
