My family and I visited the Roman ruins of Jerash. My two kids (aged 6 & 8) absolutely loved exploring the ruins. Initially, they didn't seem too thrilled about walking around, but soon after visiting the Hippodrome and understanding what it was, they started to...More

This place is special. It takes you back to the greatness of the Greek and Roman empire. The most amazing site - much more extensive and well-preserved than expected. I think this was one of the best experiences in my life.

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.
