With an enchanting mix of ancient and modern, Amman has perhaps very few parallels in the world. This ancient capital city, called Philadelphia in Roman times, is rich in historical archaeological sites, art galleries and shops.
On this city tour, visit the Bronze Age Citadel and admire the impressive Roman-era amphitheatre and temples. The Archaeological Museum here houses the famous Dead Sea Scrolls, a copy of the oldest Hebrew text and four rare Iron Age sarcophagi. Explore the Umayyad Palace at the Citadel, which dates back to 720 AD. Pay a visit to the Ottoman-style King Abdullah I Mosque, a grand monument of the modern times.
The city also has colourful souks and shopping malls, selling everything from tiny souvenirs to expensive designer wear.
Entrance fees to all sites are included and you have the choice to explore the sites independently or enlist the services and knowledge of a local guide
