Jordan's capital city, Amman spreads across 19 hills and includes many distinct districts, each with their own historical and cultural marvels.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Al Balad – Downtown Amman and Jabal Al Lweibdeh. The Jordan Museum and TIRAZ Widad Kawar Home for Arab Dress will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Amman side-trips: Azraq (Qasr Azraq, Quseir Amra, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the engaging exhibits at Children's Museum, get engrossed in the history at The Folklore Museum, wander the streets of Nabad Art Gallery, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
