This is the top attraction in the city and might be the most beautiful.
Located on Jabal al-Qal’a (“the castle hill”), this place attracts thousands of visitors yearly, and for a reason! Where else can you see ruins from the Bronze Age, Roman era, and Islamic era all in one place?
The Roman Amphitheater
Iconic landmark, built in the 2nd century AD, and offers a glimpse into the city’s rich history. The amphitheater is one of Amman’s most important historical sites, symbolizing the city’s enduring cultural legacy.
We recommend visiting the stage ruins and seating areas to get a feel for what a performance must have been like thousands of years ago.
Jordan Archaeological Museum
This place is a must-see for any of you interested in archaeology, history, and culture, allowing you to explore pottery, statues, and jewelry from Jordan’s ancient past.
Full of cafes, restaurants, shops, and galleries, it is very evident why this street is popular with tourists and locals alike. Located in the Jabal Amman neighborhood, it’s filled with vibrant colors, amazing food scenes, sounds, sights, and smells – Rainbow Street is a hub of activity day and night!
King Abdullah Mosque
This mosque was built in honor of King Abdullah I, the founder of modern Jordan, and became one of the iconic sites in Amman. You can actually see his distinctive blue dome from many parts of the city, but it doesn’t replace a visit to see its beautiful blend of traditional and modern architecture.
The old market of Amman Al Balad
If you want to experience “the real Amman,” you should visit the market downtown! A variety of crafts can be purchased there, along with a glimpse of local culture. The market offers handmade pottery, spices, textiles, and so much more, offering everything you can imagine.
