Sites in Jordan

Down Town

Down Town Amman, offers a variety of sites to visit. In order to truly experience the Jordanian culture, you must walk through the streets and discover the various markets offering all kinds of product and souvenirs. Below you will find two sites which are of particular interest.

The Citadel

The Citadel is located on the highest point of Amman, where a stunning view of the city offers travelers the chance to see the true dimensions of this dramatic metropolis. It is known to be the site of ancient Rabbath-Amman, where numerous excavations have revealed the presence of Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic remains. This is the ideal venue to initiate a tour of the archaeological sites of Amman.

Roman Theatre

This theatre, which approximately dates back to the 2nd century AD, comes back to life each year when new performances take over the stage and attract up to 6000 visitors per show. This monument was built into the side of the mountain, and until today still enjoys an impressive acoustic sound. Visit this site and discover from which seat the emperor used to see the action taking place.

Fun Family Activities

Wadi Mujib

Explore Jordan’s very own “Grand Canyon” known as Wadi Mujib, a gorge that runs east of the Dead Sea’s shores. This one-of-a-kind terrain offers its visitors a variety of activities from camel-trekking to canyoning (available only for adults and teenagers over 18 years of age) and camping at the Mujib Reserve.


Live like a Bedouin and visit one of Jordan’s multiple camps sites to enjoy a night under the stars and breathtaking sunsets in an ever-changing landscape. From eco sites, to the classic Wadi Rum, Jordan has everything to offer the hardy adventurer or the weekend-warrior looking for the ultimate in glamping.

Red Sea/Aqaba

While the Red Sea basin offers Technicolor coral reefs across it’s extent, the diving along Aqaba's 24-km coast is considered among the best. With the opportunity to snorkel above shipwrecks like the 75-m Cedar Pride — a cargo ship scuttled in the 1980s — and even a military tank, as well as watching dolphins and tropical fish cruise by, Aqaba certainly earns its title.

Three Fingers of Hercules

Constructed under the rule of Marcus Aurelius from 161 AD to 180 AD, the three marble fingers of Hercules are likely the only remaining evidence of a giant statue of the mythical hero that adorns the gates of the Amman Citadel. These remnants of the Temple of Hercules, will surely delight adults and children alike as they spark the flames of imagination.
