Reasons to visit Amman

Visit the Roman Theatre

The remains of the city’s Roman Theatre are considered some of the most impressive in the world. Likely built during the reign of Antoninus Pius, this amphitheatre has been cut into the side of a hill and can seat up to 6,000 people.

As this is understandably one of Amman’s most popular attractions, visit at sunrise or sunset to avoid the crowds and the highest temperatures in summer. For a truly unforgettable experience, plan ahead and see a show in these incredible surroundings as the ancient theatre is still used as a venue for concerts.

Admire the Citadel

Perched atop Jabal Al Qala’a, the tallest hill in Amman, is the stunning Citadel – where the ancient royal city of the Ammonites, Rabbath Ammon stood. This is an amazing place to visit and features significant landmarks such as the Temple of Hercules and the Umayyad Palace.

Amongst the many wonders is a 1,700-metre-long wall, which dates back to the Bronze Age, and a sixth century church that celebrates the Byzantine era, as well as many more wonders to behold. If you’re a lover of history, this is the place for you when you fly to Amman.

Climb Mount Nebo

Take a day to visit Mount Nebo, just under an hour away by car from Amman. Mount Nebo is around 1,000 metres high and offers breathtaking views of Jordan. Once you reach the top, you’ll be able to see the Dead Sea, Bethlehem and when the skies are very clear, Jerusalem. Be sure to look for the Brazen Serpent Monument atop the mountain.

Mount Nebo is a sacred site and on the mountain you’ll find the Mount Nebo Monastery, first built in the fourth-century, and turned into a basilica in the Byzantine era. In here, you’ll find ancient mosaics. There’s also a tourism complex, containing the stories of Mount Nebo.
