The Citidal is extremely interesting and well worth seeing. Although warning: forget using a guide. They overcharge 30 JD for an inferior 45 minute lecture. That is more money per hour than most people make in the USA. I feel they rip off the tourists....More

It is In The middle of town so worth investing up to an hour if you combine it with a stroll round the old town

Situated at the top of downtown Amman, the Citadel is the perfect spot to kick off your tour of the city. A bit of a climb from the Roman theatre, but you can take a taxi up for only 1-2 JOD if you prefer. At...More

Spent about an hour wondering around this famous landmark site in Amman, lots of old roman ruins which unlike most places you go to, you can actually go up and climb on and get some pictures with. Probably not good for the preservation of it...More

As there is not a lot of sightseeing in Amman the Citadel except some ancient columns and a badly tendered archeological museum offers a panoramic view of Amman

This is a must see while in Ammen. The Archeological Museum is sparsely filled, but worth viewing. The historical content and the views from above, especially of the Roman Ampitheater below, are beautiful and worth framing.

Good views of Amman, A lot to see- you could wonder round here for ages, A lot of history and different sites in a compound. We walked from downtown Amman which took 20mins but you could take a taxi which is about 1 JOD

The ruins are actually quite impressive and the Citadel even more so because of the reconstruction of the roof and some of the carved stone inside. The museum is pretty basic and dated but nonetheless interesting. The whole site can easily be covered in a...More
