The citadel is history well preserved in Amman and transports you to the ages bygone. It is nicer to visit with the guide who can explain the various Roman, Greek and other influences.

This is another great location to take pictures of the city and the roman ruins. The amphitheater is close by and both places have small but interesting museums to visit.

Breathtaking historical site that will take you back to the Middle Bronze Age. Ancient well, a Byzantine church and the Umayyad Palace are just a few sites to explore. Stunning views, the artifacts are well worth seeing some are thousands of years old
