This was a beautiful site, absolutely amazing. There's a lot to see, and one can spend hours just roaming around looking at all the ancient Roman ruins. For those not familiar with the ruins and it's history, I would recommend hiring an official guide from...More

It is an impressive site, there is a lot to see and you can spend hours wondering around. You have free parking and a restaurant inside the promises.

This place is one of the biggest Roman ruins we’ve visited so far compared to the one in Turkey and Greece. Well worth the hour drive from Amman. A must visit while in Jordan

One of the best sites and THE best Roman site I have ever been to. You should spend 2 to 3 hours here to see most of it. The ruins are so well preserved its incredible. A must do on your Jordan trip.

Having seen many Roman ruins we were considering skipping this on our trip to Jordan. We were glad we did not as it provides a great insight into what a city in that period would look like. Definitely worth the half day we spent there

Thanks to Enjoy Jordan I had a wonderful personally customised trip. Just me and a driver/guide with specialist guides at important sites. Jerash was unknown to me - a preserved roman city centre still intact. Kilometre long roads and a forum that is brethtaking.

Jerash is around 50km from Amman's Amphitheater but but it has it's own very impressive Amphitheater within the site. If you have enough time, I would advise visiting the Citadel and Amphitheater in Amman on one day and... More

I would advice Jerash which is much more beautiful and big than Kerak. I think it is nearer as well.
