Beautifully preserved site of Roman Ruins. You can almost feel the gladiators and their animals charging through the site. Spend a few hours here & go early in the day to avoid the heat & crowds. Bring or buy water before entering as you cannot...More

They call Jeraash the "Pompeii" of the Middle East. The site is approx 1 hour from Amman by car. It is easy to get there with all the highway signs. When you arrive near the entrance, there will be a parking lot where someone might...More

Gigantic site, plan at least 4 hours to visit or more. Roman ruins are well preserved, particularly the theater and hippodrome. The central place needs to be looked at from up to hill to really see its magnificence. One of the must see in Jordan...More

This site is about 40 klms from Amman so a comfortable day trip. There is NO SHADE (don't remember seeing a single tree) on this site other than sheltering under the rocks, arches or a couple of alleys that lead into the ampitheatres. In the...More

This place has amazing ruins on par with Greece, though I do understand a lot of restorative work has been done and so the originalness is not there. There is a mall of shops and brickabrack to pick through if you would like to bring...More

We had a tremendous time visiting Jerash and exploring the ruins. While they aren't well-maintained, there was a certain unruliness to the ruins that added more character. Plan on spending 3-4 hours there, if you can. There is a lot of explore. Be careful if...More
