The Citadel has a wonderful mix of Greek, Roman and Arab history on a hilltop in the center of Amman. It is worth a visit for the views alone.
Located in the city center this historical hill overlooks the entire city with excellent views all around. Also amazing architecture from Roman times including a Museum as well as a temple dedicated to Hercules.. A must visit when in Amman!

This is on the high spot of Amman and very good place for photography. It also has a good museum and some nice architecture form Roman and Islamic Era.
A must see place in Amman with plenty of Roman ruins. The chief attraction is the fantastic views of Amman from the walls.
