Amman (also known as the Philadelphia of ancient times) is a stunning city filled with history. Your day will be enriched with a visit to see its ancient Roman ties downtown exhibiting its citadel overlooking the Roman Amphitheatre. We wander through the old markets enlivened with Jordanian culture and pop into the Royal Automobile Museum—a tribute to the late King Hussein. A walk past his palace will lead you to the beautiful white stone villas dotted through uptown Amman. You will be amazed at the contrast between ancient and modern Amman on this tour.
