Full description
Begin your 6-hour tour with hotel pickup from central Amman, then travel in an air-conditioned vehicle to Jerash. Admire the passing towns and landscapes as your driver explains the history of Jerash, an ancient city covered by sand for centuries. Head through the city gate and walk around the well-preserved ruins as your guide tells you about the city in its heyday. See arches, theaters, and elegant streets. Snap photos of the stunning Oval Plaza, an egg-shaped public square framed by columns.   After this, return to Amman for a panoramic tour of the city’s highlights. Drive around the downtown area past markets, churches, and mosques such as King Abdullah’s mosque. Pass King Hussein’s Palace, where the late king is laid to rest. Discover the Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic-era ruins of Amman Citadel. Gaze in awe at the Roman Amphitheater, carved into a hillside in the 2nd century B.C. Enjoy free time for shopping in the local gold and spice markets. Your tour then concludes by strolling the Jabal al Weibdeh and Jabal Amman areas, and the Rainbow Street, Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hotspot. Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of Abdoun and Sweifieh, where luxury shopping malls and private villas line the streets. After passing through modern Amman, drive back to your hotel.
