Full description
After being picked up from your hotel, set off to explore the bustling Jabal Amman district. If there’s something you want to see more of, tell your escort as your itinerary can be tailored around you. Head for Rainbow Street, a road that encapsulates Amman's energy and arts scene. Stroll by bookshops, cafés, craft galleries, and 1920s villas. Savor some street snacks or stop for breakfast such as a falafel sandwich (a deep-fried chickpea patty) or kunafa, a local cheese-filled pastry encrusted with pistachios. Saunter down Mango Street, past the historic buildings of the Royal Film Commission, Nabad Gallery, and Books@Cafe. Break up your exploring with free time to shop for souvenirs.

After this, continue on to the Jabal Al-Weibdeh district by vehicle and learn the history of one of Amman's oldest and hippest districts. Stroll the winding streets, admiring the stone buildings and leafy lanes as you discover the area's contemporary art scene. Absorb the creative vibe at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, and Makan Arts Space, an alternative arts venue. Admire the Arabic art at Darat Al Funun gallery, set in three 1920s villas; and visit Dar El Anda, another arts hub inside a historical building. See the National Museum Park and visit the Paris Circle, the heart of Weibdeh. Take a walk in the pretty park in this lively square, and learn how it got its French name.

Choose the option to enjoy a home-cooked lunch at Café Najla, a local authentic trendy restaurant serving traditional Jordanian cuisine. Upgrade to the Amman Citadel and Roman Theater tour and choose to continue the tour by vehicle to Amman's downtown markets and the Roman Theatre and Citadel. End the tour with a hotel drop-off, or an optional central drop-off that lets you continue exploring independently. Alternatively, your guide will provide directions back to your hotel.
