Itinerary

King Abdullah I Mosque
You will be taken to a mosque that was built as a tribute to the founder of Jordan—King Abdullah Bin Al-Hussein. You will feast your eyes on a beautifully domed mosque, embedded with millions of glimmering blue mosaics awaiting your camera lens to capture its beauty.To expand on your mosque experience, we will then broaden your horizons by visiting the magnificent Islamic museum. This museum is divided into two sections: the first covers manuscripts of the Martyr, King Abdullah Bin Al-Hussein (God rest his soul), along with spectacular photos and models of archaeological sites of the Islamic existence; the second section features fascinating artifacts belonging to the various extended eras of Islam in Jordan.
Amman Citadel
Our next destination is another one for the history buffs—the citadel. This is definitely something that you don’t want to miss as it has withstood the test of time and is evidence that modern Amman has been inhabited for the past 7,000 years.Upon arriving at the citadel, you will notice that it is grandly situated on the peak of an L-shaped mountain. Its special location will reveal incredible views of the seven mountains that assemble Amman, leaving you in awe.

Citadel Outline:
Temple of Hercules: Built between 162 and 166 AD, this massive structure dedicated to Hercules is larger than any of the temples in Rome.
Byzantine Church: A basilica built between the 5th and 6th centuries.
Umayyad Mosque: The remains of the Umayyad governor’s palace mosque dating from the 8th century.
Dome of the Vestibule: A modern recreation of the interior of the dome of the Umayyad Vestibule.

Amman Roman Amphitheater
We will now head off to the Roman Amphitheater, which can be viewed from the citadel. It is a large and steeply raked theater that could seat approximately 6,000 people and was built into the hillside and facing north, to keep the sun off the spectators.
The Royal Automobile Museum
Moving swiftly uptown, we will make our way to a unique museum, which was a tribute by King Abdullah to his father, late King Hussein. With an impressive selection of antique cars, you will also be observing moments in history. The attraction of these antiques lies within the great men who drove them, the events and occasions they were used for, as well as the cars themselves.The museum is open for guests on a daily basis except for Tuesdays. At the end of this eventful day, we will escort you back to your hotel, where you can sit back, relax, and reflect on the cultural enrichment you’ve experienced in Amman.
