Jordan's capital city, Amman spreads across 19 hills and includes many distinct districts, each with their own historical and cultural marvels.
Get out of town with these interesting Amman side-trips: Jerash Ruins (in Jerash) and Madaba (Madaba Mosaic Map, St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of The Citadel, contemplate the long history of Roman Amphitheater, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Alexander the Great Gallery, and examine the collection at Royal Automobile Museum.

Start your trip to Amman by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
