Full description
Start the tour driving through Jabal Al - Hussein for a breathtaking view of old Amman from the Citadel. Gaze in awe at the Roman Amphitheater, carved into a hillside in the 2nd-century BC. Pass King Hussein’s Palace, where the late, revered king is laid to rest. Proceed to the downtown area and take some free time to wander through the old gold and spice markets. The tour will continue to the city’s various mosques including King Abdullah Mosque and churches such as Coptic Orthodox Church. 

Continue the tour with a stroll through the historical area of Jabal Al – Webdeih, famous for its different art galleries. Then, wander down Rainbow Street in Jabal Amman Quarter, the cradle of many of Amman’s landmarks including headquarters of the Jordan River Foundation, and the residence of King Talal. 

After discovering Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hot spot, head over to the modern part of town. Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of Abdoun and Swefieh, where luxury shopping malls and swanky private villas line the streets. Alternatively, ask to be dropped off at one of the malls like Galleria and Taj Mall or at Abdali Boulevard, a stylish new enclave of designer shops regarded as Amman’s up-and-coming downtown area.
